Hosta are one of the finest woodland plants and ground covers for the shade.
You can use smaller hosta in mass plantings or one large hosta as the focal point of the garden.
Hosta are very hardy and long-lived and they are easy to care for. They come in all shapes - from lance-shaped leaves to big, bold crinkled leaves; all sizes - from small edging plants to huge specimen plants; in solid colors - various shades of green, yellow, or blue; in variegated forms with contrasting cream, white, or yellow streaks, edges, or centers; with lavender or white flowers, some of which are quite fragrant; from deep shade lovers to sun tolerant forms. The diversity is monumental!
Plant hosta under crab apple, cherry or dogwood trees; plant them among ferns, Astilbe, Japanese Anemone, Lobelia, Dicentra, Pulmonaria, or any other shade or part shade loving perennials, trees, or shrubs. They absolutely light up the shade!
Visit Viette’s and wander through our extensive hosta gardens and display beds where you can see first hand the tremendous diversity of these magnificent perennials.
Andre has been busy digging in the gardens again which means an incredible array of his unique hosta will be available for you to purchase in the Garden Center!
