Hosta 'Tom Schmid' is a choice variety forming a mound of elegant tapering, heart-shaped, evenly ribbed blue-grey leaves, becoming dark green, with a slender, irregular white margin. Lavender lily-like flowers open in July. Both leaves and flowers are good for flower arranging. Ideal among evergreen and deciduous shrubs, associating well with other hostas, ferns and heuchera's. Height and spread 40-50cm by 55-65cm.

Plant in moist but well-drained, humus-rich soil, in dappled or full shade, sheltered from wind. 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. Feed fortnightly with a balanced liquid feed from spring to midsummer. Apply liquid slug killer from early spring at fortnightly intervals for 6-8 weeks. 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.
