Hosta Plants

Hosta Plants are shade tolerant, hardy perennials that are grown mainly for their foliage.


Hosta, pronounced HOSS-tah, also commonly called Plantain Lily, do best when placed in shade or semi-shade conditions. As a general rule, the gold and yellow colored varieties get their best coloring when given slightly more sun. Hostas need regular watering during dry spells, if you notice the leaf edges turning brown, increase the amount of water. They do not need regular division to keep them vigorous.
