Have a shady garden? Are you interested in a plant that will thrive in these conditions, but you want to avoid the common choices such as ferns, coral bells and several varieties of grass? If so, there are several Hosta's you may be interested in here at Plantsbymail.com. Hostas, due to their underground rhizomes, spread easily and quickly. Every few years you may consider dividing them and replanting in a new location. You will find that the majority of Hosta varieties naturally fit into a wide range of landscapes and gardens. Ranging from 1 to 3 feet in height and width on average but you will discover that both larger and smaller species are also available. Hostas are easy to maintain perennial shrubs.

Do Hostas Like Sun or Shade?

You will that almost all Hostas are lovers of shade but could benefit from dappled sunlight as well. Variegated yellow varieties require sunlight in order to bring out the vibrant colors while solid blue and green varieties require little sunlight. The biggest factor when growing Hostas will be climate zones. It is common for Hosta's to be associated with cooler temperatures and you will find that nearly all Hosta's, except for our SunHosta, will not tolerate warmer climates. Hostas are winter hardy in USDA zones 3-9.

How Often Should I Water My Hosta?

If you have just planted your Hosta, you should be expecting to water it deeply several times a week. Hostas benefit from a deep watering of the roots so be sure not to focus on the foliage too much. Once it has become well established Plantain lilies are drought tolerant plants, but they do enjoy well-draining moist soil. In warmer weather you may water it up to 3 times per week as needed. Hostas require at least 30 consecutive days of temperatures below 43 degrees F for a successful winter dormancy. Mulch around the base of your plant to both insulate and retain moisture.
