The Hosta is a shade plant and comes in a wide
variety of greens and whites. Some have leaves that are small, curly
and variegated while others have wide, broad leaves and a single shade of
green. Grows from spring till fall, then will die off during the
winter. Hostas are great to share with family and friends. Just
divide clumps in the spring and replant in good soil and they will
thrive. There is not much you can do to kill off these plants. Many
people will cut off the seed pod after the hosta flowers.
Deer enjoy eating the Hosta.
