Design Ideas: With its preference for deep shade, Halcyon thrives in the dark beneath evergreen conifers. Also does fine with some filtered sun and makes a pretty back-border plant for Hosta beds under trees. Its blue-gray coloring looks best when it is used as a filler between more yellowish green plants and Fern.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.

History

Hosta is the grown up cousin to the plantain weed, which came to America with colonials. It naturalized so easily that Native American's claimed it sprang up wherever the white man walked.
