Hostas

Hostas are a natural choice for growing under trees. There are over 2,500 varieties, from petite dwarf types to mammoth varieties spanning several feet across. hostas are rugged and once established, they tolerate almost any soil and will grow for years.

Native to northeast Asia, in 1812 it was named after an Austrian botanist Nicholas Thomas Host. Hostas do flower and the only strongly fragrant species is “Hostas Plantaginea” with white flowers up to four inches long. Flowers open in the evening and close by morning. This species blooms in late summer and is sometimes known as “August Lily”.
