Hostas are versatile and absolutely easy to grow! They come in a multitude of colors, textures and sizes and are attractive all season long. They can be used for edging, ground covers or for specimen plants in a shady garden. The flowers attract pollinators and hummingbirds.

All hostas prefer moist, well drained soil, that has been amended with organic material. Most hostas grow best in part shade to full shade and some varieties are sun tolerant, but all prefer at least 30% shade for best growth and quality. A bit of morning sun will help intensify the foliage color on some varieties of hostas. The hot afternoon sun is a definite no-no as they will burn to a crisp. Mulch helps to keep the soil moist and the weeds at bay. Slugs hide in mulch and can eat holes in the foliage. This is easy to remedy by sprinkling Sluggo around the base of the plants in early spring, or place shallow dishes of beer around. Slugs are attracted to beer and will crawl in and drown.

Defining Sunlight Terms

Full Sun – 6-8 hours of direct sunlight.

Part Sun or Part Shade – These are used interchangeably to mean 3-6 hours of sun each day. Morning or early afternoon is desirable. Mid to late afternoon sun can burn plants in this category.

Dappled Sun – Dappled sun is similar to partial shade. It is the sun that makes its way through the branches of trees. Many woodland plants prefer this type of exposure.

Full Shade – Less than 3 hours of direct sunlight each day, with filtered sunlight during the rest of the day. Full shade does not mean no sun. There are very few plants that will grow in the dark.
