Plant 2–4' apart in rich soil with adequate humus. Disturb clumps as little as possible; they improve with age as they spread and establish.
Hostas tolerate a wide range of soil conditions but need moisture. Blue and variegated leaves develop their best color in shade. Deep shade gives fewer flowers.
Valuable and cherished low-maintenance plant provides shade-loving groundcover from spring to frost. Bold foliage forming orderly mounds bears midsummer sprays of fragrant bell-shaped flowers on tall stalks. With their varying colors, textures and clump sizes, hostas alone under trees can make a woodland garden.
Note: Our hosta have been dug “green” and the grower leaves 2-3" of foliage attached to protect the crown during shipping. It may give the appearance of a soft crown. This is the same as what the plant would do naturally when senescing in the fall.
