Hosta plants are a perennial favorite among gardeners. Their lush foliage and easy care make them ideal for a low maintenance garden.
Although hostas are considered shade lovers, their sunlight requirements vary widely. Successfully growing hostas in the shade depends on colour. Hosta leaves come in a variety of greens, ranging from a colour so deep it’s called blue to a light yellowish green to soft creamy white.
A good rule of thumb for the placement and care of hostas is the lighter the foliage, the brighter the sun. The deeper darker foliage retains it colour best in moderate shade.
To keep your growing hostas healthy, fertilise them each spring with an all-purpose garden fertiliser. Additional summer fertilising may be helpful, but not necessary.
Good hosta care requires good drainage. When newly planted, keep the roots moist, not wet. Once established, hosta plants aren’t fussy and are very tolerant of summer drought.
