Hosta are hardy perennials that are especially perfect for a shady garden. Reliable and very easy to grow, Hosta are long-lived—and may even outlive the gardener!
What’s neat about Hosta is that there are so many sizes, heights, textures, and colors. Plus, they work in many kinds of gardens (patio, border, container, rock).Though mainly known for their attractive foliage, the plants also produce lovely flowers during the summer in fragrant pink, lavender, or white. Hummingbirds love the flowers. Note: Slugs, snails, deer, and rabbits like Hosta almost as much as people do. Keep this in mind if you have deer regularly wandering into your garden.
