Color and Texture for Even the Shadiest Corners of Your Yard
Unlike some perennials that require a bit of coaxing to draw out their best hues, hostas offer a wide range of color with little effort. Prized for their foliage, easy-to-grow hostas have leaves that can be nearly any size, from narrow, glossy slivers to giant frosted leaves up to 18 inches wide and long. The four main colors, green, blue, and gold, each offer nearly limitless hues, and any can be combined together, or with white, on a variegated variety. Foliage textures, like corrugated ribbing, leaf ripples, and varying degrees of gloss, also add interest.
