About Hosta

Hostas are a widely regarded as one of the most popular shade perennials. Their popularity is due in part to their ease of culture, the public's greater awareness of the value of landscaping upon property values, and the positive effect hostas have on our ecology. Hostas offer endless variation and numerous opportunities in the shade garden. From green, gold, blue to multicolored, their leaves appear in all manner of sizes, shape and texture. Flowers range from lavender to white and many are fragrant! Hostas require little maintenance and become larger and more valuable each year. Hostas are a perfect choice for today's modern, busy gardener. Great Garden Plants have carefully selected some truly outstanding performing Hostas for North American gardens. No shade garden plans should be without hostas. When you consider how long lived hostas are, they are a small investment that will give you years of enjoyment. More than this, hostas are delightfully modern, and display an understated elegance. Their dramatic appearance is often accentuated when combined with other shade loving plants such as ferns, Heuchera, shrubs, and trees.
