Hostas are splendid , easy to grow, hardy and undervalued plants. Once established, they will grow from year to year with minimal attention. In cooler areas some forms may be semi deciduous. The new foliage appears in springtime as does the flowering in most varieties. New releases are being introduced every year so smart gardeners can upgrade their displays as needed.
For use in shady and semi shaded gardens, the bold leaves stand out under tree lines and shaded areas around buildings.
