Home of the NO SMALL PLANTS!
We are a bona fide nursery where we grow plants. That means we don’t just pop our plants out of a tray and sell you a liner. Our plants are grown on to a bigger size, many times even to a mature plant!

Humble Hen Farm & Nursery
Height: 16.0 inches Spread: 36.0 inches
Common Name: Hosta First Frost
- A sport of ‘Halcyon’ with the same intense blue-green leaf center
- Emerges with a gold margin early in the spring, then changes to pure white later in the season
- The leaves hold up well in the garden all season long until the “first frost”
- Light lavender flowers appear on 28″ scapes in midsummer
Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today’s gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.
Info: Our plants are grown in 5.25 x 5.25 x 5.25 inch pots and develop large root systems. These are not a small liner or starter but a plant you can put right into your garden. That means you will get a bigger plant right away compared to a starter plant. We guarantee you will get a true to type healthy plant that you will love for years. If you have any problems or questions we are happy to help. During early spring plants may still be breaking dormancy so they may appear smaller than they will be when they fully leaf out. The last photos show the size of the plants you will receive currently.
Shipping: We do not ship to Hawaii or Alaska due to cost and import restrictions. Plants will be removed from their pots and loose soil removed and the rootball placed in a bag. We are an inspected nursery from the VA Dept of AG.
