Soil: Evenly moist, organically rich, slightly acid, well-drained soils.
Light: Part shade to full shade -- Best in part shade (some morning sun or sun dappled conditions).
Water: Medium -- Established plants have some tolerance for dry shade (particularly plants with thick leaves), but soils should never be allowed to dry out. Water is best applied directly to the soil beneath the leaves.
Spacing: 2 - 3 feet
Fertilizing: Light application of time release fertilizer, or side-dress with compost and organic amendments when new growth appears in early spring.
Winterizing: Foliage should be cut back to the ground in the fall. Provide a winter mulch of evergreen boughs, 2" of leaves or salt marsh hay after the ground freezes to help prevent heaving, and protect the shallow crowns.
Maintenance & pruning: offers slug-proof varieties.  However, there may be regions of the country where the environment is conducive to slugs.  Slugs are the bane of hostas; use slug bait, dishes of beer, and diatomaceous earth to discourage them. Groom plants by removing yellow or dead leaves, and cut flower spikes back as they finish blooming in summer.
