Hosta General Information:

Hosta display lush foliage in diverse colors, heights, and textures. Their ability to excel in deep shade have captured gardener's hearts everywhere.

Hosta Plant Care:

Deadheading will improve the appearance of Hosta, but birds love the seeds, and some Hosta will self sow, but not usually true to the parent. Remove soupy frozen foliage in the late fall or early spring. Can be divided in spring or fall every 3-5 years.
