Annuals Perennials Trees & Shrubs Roses Vegetables Herbs Fruit



The hardy Hostas produce blue, lavender, or white blooms or long leafless stalks, but the plants are grown as much for their beautiful foliage clumps and because the prosper in shady locations.  Hundreds of hybrids have been developed that range in size from small dwarfs to giant-sized specimens with leaves in all shapes in white, yellow, blue, and variegated shades.  Hostas are low-maintenance plants that thrive where other desirable plants refuse to grow.  They look nice on a shady bank, along a woodland path and as an edging for a shrub or wildflower garden.  Although they prefer light shade, they will grow in full sun if the soil is moist, deep, and well supplies with humus and nutrients.
