Hosta plants are a fun and easy shrub to grow. They perform well in shade gardens and can be grown across most of the United States.
There are hundreds of different types of hostas that have different colored leaves and flower colors. Our 6 hosta varieties are great options if you are looking for low maintenance plants that are easy to care for. They can spruce up any garden area and love to be planted underneath trees.
These herbaceous groundcovers are perennial plants and will come back year after year with the proper care and maintenance. It doesn't take much effort to keep them thriving. They will spread to the area that you plant them in.
Hostas prefer well drained soil and part shade to full shade. Growing hostas in your landscape will provide a pop of green color during the spring and summer growing months. A flower stalk will appear as well.
Hostas are evergreen in some locations and deciduous in others. If you are in a cold climate they will die down to the ground during the winter. In the spring the leaves will re-emerge when the weather warms up. Hosta winter protection includes mulching heavily to protect against frost.
Hostas love to be planted in the shade and can be creative landscaping plants. Landscaping with hostas ensures you will have unique gardens. They can be planted in borders, shade gardens, or even in containers.
Did you know hostas are edible? Although almost forgotten on the edible foods list... hostas can be foraged and cooked in many ways. A lost art.
