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. Good selection for the coldest areas (zones 3 & 4), good selection for Gulf states (zones 8, 9, & 10).

Hosta Plant Care:

Hostas are low maintenance. Unwanted or damaged leaves can be clipped off at the base at any time. The entire plant will die back for the winter and spent foliage can usually be raked or clipped off easily in late fall or early spring. Can be divided in spring or fall every 3-5 years if desired. Remove the flower stalks at any time, especially if seeding is not wanted (but birds do love the seed).
