Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
James H. Schutte
Hosta, Plantain Lily
Hostas are herbaceous perennials grown for their attractive leaves, tolerance for shade, toughness, and mounding habit. One of many species brought into gardening, Hosta ventricosa Like most hostas, Hosta ventricosa grows best in partial shade to full shade, tolerates a wide range of well-drained soils, and prefers average, even moisture. Use it for contrasts of habit and texture in shaded perennial gardens and woodlands, or massed as a groundcover under tall trees to complement their scale.
