Genus Overview: Hosta

Common Name: Hosta


Hosta. Hosta is a staple for shade gardeners. Hostas prefer open to dappled shade conditions. Early morning or late day sun is generally acceptable. The exception to the rule (and it seems in the plant world there is always at least one exception to the rule!) is Hosta plantaginea which requires more sun for flowering to occur. Hostas can fill a midsummer’s day dream with spikes of lavender, purple and white blossoms, some fragrant. There are growers and collectors who dislike hosta flowers though I find this a curious affectation; I am personally grateful for perennials of easy disposition that so readily bloom, carefree, adorning and lighting the woodland garden during a period that might otherwise be a flowerless void. Flower your garden! Dig in. Have fun. Hostas prefer fertile draining soil with many demonstrating moderate drought tolerance once established. Many of the following are offered as pot-grown divisions of our stock plants. Others are from tissue culture. For Hosta there are several different size charts available that can be found on line with some digging. Of course, some plants straddle these arbitrary determinations. We are using the following classification...

Mature Heights:

Miniature: less than 6 inches

Small: 6 - 12 inches

Medium: 12 - 18 inches

Large: 18 - 24 inches

Very Large: 24+ inches
