Because of their immense ease, love for shade and desire for moisture, hostas are a favorite for gardeners when searching for a plant to fill those areas that do not get the benefit of full sun. Their foliage patterns and textures add interest to garden areas where sun loving flowers won't grow. Of course there are varieties that can tolerate some amount of heat and sun, but its the way they can enhance those areas of your landscape that once seem neglected and boring that makes them a true favorite and a staple in area landscapes. Leaf sizes, colors and spreading ability are part of the selection process and with so many available varieties, you are sure to find one or two or even three varieties that will compliment and enhance your landscape. In addition to the leaf, the flowers produced by certain hostas are prized for their fragrance, just one more item that deserves attention when choosing the hosta that will best suit your desires.
Yes, it's easy to find varieties of hostas that will work for you. The tough part is deciding on your favorites.
