Hostas are undoubtedly the most reliable and rewarding foliage plant family in current popularity. Cold-hardy and easy to grow, they are indispensable plants for the shady garden. Grown for the variety and pattern of their leaves, hostas contribute all-season interest to any shaded area. Some also do well in the sun if in moist, deep soil, and many are very suitable to a morning or partial sun situation. Their flowers brighten up the summer border.
