Hostas are unequalled by any other shade-loving plant because of their great beauty and versatility. Imagine strong, healthy clusters of silver-white and green, wavy leaves a foot or more long. The foliage is just waiting to be cut. Its clusters of lilac, bell-shaped flowers blend beautifully with other flowers. Hosta is a fast, fool-proof grower, will grow in all kinds of soils. Thrives indoors even in a shady north window. Hostas will live for decades if given reasonable care. Hostas are very attractive when planted in triangles, 3 feet apart. Or plant 2-3 triangles where shade is a problem.
