Hosta Plants

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


Hosta (pronounced HOSS-tuh), also commonly called Plantain Lily, does 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.

June Hosta Plant

Price $7.00

The 'June' Hosta Plant, named the Hosta of the Year in 2001, produces colorful golden leaves generously streaked with vivid, blue-green, clear out to the like-colored margins. Some gardeners report that the gold color turns visibly lighter as the summer season progresses. The blossoms that grow on 20 to 24 inch scapes are more blue than lavender and the leaves are not as heavily ribbed as many Plantain Lilies, which may contribute to Junes popularity. Also contributing to June's popularity-its tolerance to slightly salty soil and climates. Each 3-inch pot contains one June Hosta plant.
