here ‘s a newfangled one that holds its bluish green color and sends up beautiful stalks filled with lavender efflorescence. Leaves are heart shaped and flatter than most, making a very compact, fine-looking plant. Hostas are shade lovers grown largely for their beautiful leaf, and they ‘re credibly the very best plants for groundcover under trees in most parts of the U.S. Its elementary : they ‘re delighted to grow in shady spots where your supergrass will not. ( They are super hardy in cold areas, but are slightly unmanageable as far south as the Gulf Coast. ) Any gardener who lives in the huge area where Hostas are democratic knows them. nowadays with over 1000 appoint cultivars, there are Hosta collectors everywhere. Just choose your favorites from the small, medium, and large sizes, and an endless choice of flick designs. The plants, members of the lily family, are native to Korea, China and Japan, and gardeners there have used them for centuries for landscaping. The madden for Hostas is more late in the U.S. And why not ? They offer an endless assortment of their fantastic fountain mound supreme headquarters allied powers europe of big foliation — in exuberant shades of fleeceable, bluish-green, yellow green, and all sorts of varicolored types. nothing is easier to grow ; in fact, most gardeners plainly ignore them, and they form their beautiful attack shapes all by themselves, class after year. Propagation is simple, too: If you ‘ve never divided a Hosta, let me tell you how childlike and successful it can be. I once volunteered to help a supporter divide three or four big, old Hosta clumps into smaller plants to argumentation a fishy walk. We began by digging them up, and then split the big fleshy rout masses with a hatchet. Underground, Hostas are much like Daylilies, with fleshy, heavy masses of thickly rootstocks. once, we had the old ball chopped into 8 or 10 equal-size pieces each, we just dug a trench on both sides of the shady walk, and buried the pieces spaced evenly apart. They looked fine on through that summer, and the very future spring, each one was astir, healthy, and already formed into a arrant traffic circle ! so do n’t think if you divide yours, you ‘ll disturb that fantastic round fountain shape. They equitable recover and create a fresh verticillate r-2 wherever you put the divide pieces. today, that walk is edged with bombastic, alcoholic circles of Hosta leaf all season long.
The Flowers Yes, Hostas do flower, and some cultivars have quite beautiful blooms, largely purple, bluing or white, on improbable lily-like stems above the leaf. Hosta purists often nip off the flower stalks before they can bloom, preferring to throw all the growth into the all-important foliation of the plants .
