Hosta 'Invincible' forms a dense mound of rich olive-green, slightly rippled oval leaves tapering to a long point, which are reputed to have some resistance to slugs and snails-hence its name! It also bears prolific sweetly fragrant, sometimes double lavender flowers in August. Leaves and flowers are both good for flower arranging. Ideal among evergreen and deciduous shrubs, associating well with other hostas, ferns and heuchera's. Excellent in containers. Height and spread 40cm by 1m.

Plant in moist but well-drained, humus-rich soil, in sun or partial shade. For growing in containers, use a 50/50 mix of John Innes no 3 and a good multi-purpose compost. Mulch in spring, avoiding contact with the plant. Apply liquid slug killer from early spring at fortnightly intervals for 6-8 weeks. Feed fortnightly with a balanced liquid feed from spring to midsummer. Keep Hostas in containers well watered and feed fortnightly with a liquid feed throughout the growing season. Split and replant plants in containers every 2 to 3 years.

British nursery grown.
