Design Ideas: There are many ways to use Hosta in shaded or partially shaded gardens. Try as a groundcover, tightly packed into a mosaic of green, blue-green and variegated foliage. Use as clumps among the acid-loving flowering shrubs and for contrast against the feathery fronds of Fern. They are excellent in shaded rock gardens, on slopes and embankments and low, moist pockets. Later in the season, enjoy the bright flower spikes that add interest and variety to the foliage.

Provide enriched, slightly acidic, evenly moist, well-drained soil. Avoid harsh sun exposures. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide every 2 to 3 years in early spring.


Hosta is also known as plantain lily and is related to a pernicious weed introduced to North America during colonial times. It naturalized so readily Native Americans ma,ed it "white man's foot", claiming it sprang up from every foot print left upon the soil by an immigrant.
