Hostas ‘Plantain Lily’

May 5, 2023

Hostas are hardy perennials that require almost no special attention and are perfect for a garden that doesn’t get too much sun. Reliable and easy to grow, hostas are long-lived and there are so many sizes, heights, textures, and colours to work with! They fit into so many different kinds of gardens (patio, border, container, rock, shade) and are frost-hardy.

Most varieties tend to have a spread and height of between 1 and 3 feet, but larger or smaller varieties are readily available. Leaf colours include variegated white, lime green, and blue-green, to name just a few. The texture and shape of hosta leaves are also diverse, ranging from smooth and narrow to ridged and heart-shaped. They also produce lovely flowers from early summer to early autumn in pink, lavender, light blue, or white.

Slugs particularly love to munch on a hosta leaf though, so keep up slug deterrents such as copper tape around pots, wool mulch and slug pellets.
