Plant Information

Green and white. Yellow and white. Yellow and green. The variegated Hostas, in all shapes and sizes go on and on. Here we've put together several of the best for a great sampler. Enjoy the bargain prices. You'll love them all.

Hostas are shade lovers grown mostly for their beautiful foliage, and they're probably the very best plants for groundcover under trees in most parts of the U.S. Its simple: they're delighted to grow in shady spots where your grass will not. (They are super hardy in cold areas, but are somewhat difficult as far south as the Gulf Coast.)

Any gardener who lives in the huge area where Hostas are popular knows them. Now with over 1000 named cultivars, there are Hosta collectors everywhere. Just choose your favorites from the small, medium, and large sizes, and an endless choice of leaf 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 craze for Hostas is more recent in the U.S. And why not? They offer an endless variety of their wonderful fountain mound shape of handsome foliage--in lush shades of green, bluish-green, yellowish green, and all sorts of variegated types. Nothing is easier to grow; in fact, most gardeners simply ignore them, and they form their beautiful round shapes all by themselves, year after year.

Propagation is simple, too: If you've never divided a Hosta, let me tell you how simple and successful it can be. I once volunteered to help a friend divide three or four large, old Hosta clumps into smaller plants to line a shady walk. We began by digging them up, and then split the big fleshy root masses with a hatchet. Underground, Hostas are much like Daylilies, with fleshy, heavy masses of thick rootstocks. Once, we had the old clumps chopped into 8 or 10 equal-size pieces each, we simply 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 next spring, each one was up, healthy, and already formed into a perfect circle! So don't think if you divide yours, you'll disturb that wonderful round fountain shape. They just recover and create a new whorled circle wherever you put the divided pieces. Today, that walk is edged with large, lush circles of Hosta foliage all season long.

The Flowers Yes, Hostas do flower, and some cultivars have quite beautiful blooms, mostly purplish, blue or white, on tall lily-like stems above the foliage. Hosta purists often nip off the flower stalks before they can bloom, preferring to throw all the growth into the all-important foliage of the plants.

        Comments about American Meadows Variegated Hosta Mix:

        Wonderful hostas! I purchased 6 plants total and ended up with 3 different varieties of variegated hosta--all beautiful. The little "plant" you receive may look unpromising, but they grow very, very well without much effort. We have leopard slugs (among other kinds) that love our hostas, but these have yet to be bothered.

            These are great hostas. I had a bare spot on the north side of the house and these were perfect. I am a beginning gardener. Hostas are very easy to grow and require very little maintenance. They were also a great value. The plants were quite small when I received them four months ago but they have grown very large already. I will definately order more next spring.

            Q & A

            Plant With These:

            USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

            To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

            • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
            • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
