Hosta are the perfect cold hardy addition to any shade garden. You will mostly see them at the borders of woodland gardens or encircling the base of pine trees. Hostas have a huge variety, showcasing plants with deep emerald green leaves accented by white glowing edges as well as displaying glossy yellow/ green variegated foliage. The shapes, colors, and textures are endless. They are known for their broad heart shaped leaves that point away forming a circular display of foliage. They prefer sheltered, moist, and well drained areas. Come summer, expect the added glamour of beautiful blooms that shoot up above the decorative leaves to attract hummingbirds and butterflies.
