Hosta Plants Are the Perfect Choice for Landscaping Around Decking and Porches

By Published July 05, 2016 Updated July 05, 2022

Hosta plants are beautiful perennial plants that grow well in shade and offer the perfect solution for landscaping areas around porches, decks and other areas that have little sunlight. Hosta plants come in a variety of foliage colors and will provide you with beautiful color throughout the spring and summer months. If you have areas of your garden or around your home that offer only partial sunlight, these plants make an excellent choice. Hostas range in size from around 2 inches to more than 3 feet high and 6 inches to more than 6 feet wide. They typically grow very well in USDA hardiness zones 3 through 8.

When choosing hostas it is important to note that their leaves take on different shapes. Some may have leaves that are heart-shaped while others may be completely round. You can add several different types of hostas to your garden area if you prefer a garden that is diverse. Their leaf colors range as well with various shades of green, gold, and blue, including variegation throughout the leaves. During the summer months, hostas give you beautiful flowers and since they are perennials, you will not have to worry with planting a hosta plant year after year. Provided you care for them properly, flowering hostas will give you many years of beautiful flowers and foliage.
