Hostas are luscious foliage that are in high demand for any shady areas of a garden. They make excellent groundcovers and come in a variety of variegated or solid greenery. I started with a few hostas and have never had to buy any since because they are so easy to divide and plant in other parts of the garden. Also known as Funkia or Plantain Lily, these disease resistant plants are native to Korea, China and Japan. These attractive care free perennials come in a range of sizes and shapes and colors along with spikes of purple flowers to capture your interest throughout the season. In fall their foliage take on the beautiful fall colors.
