Hostas: Plants for a Woodland Shade Garden

Hostas: Plants for a Woodland Shade Garden

By Published February 27, 2016 Updated June 27, 2022

If you would like to add perennials plants to your garden that require minimal sunlight, consider hostas. Plants like hostas from Plant Delights Nursery are particularly sought after plants for woodland gardens and we offer a large selection of the best hosta varieties. Most hostas are shade hostas, meaning they do not require direct sunlight. Hostas develop beautifully in the shade and add color to areas that do not receive much sunlight. Hosta plants offer stunning leaves and some also add charming flowers and a welcome addition to the new or established shade garden.

There are an abundance of hosta plants that will successfully enhance your gardening experience and provide a distinctive and original look to your landscape. Some of our hostas require a few hours of sunlight in the morning, but most thrive all day in light shade. You can mix and match hosta plants to produce the ideal look for your shade garden. Ferns, ajuga, heuchera, and aspidistra are all great choices for shade companion plants. At Plant Delights Nursery we can help you customize your shade garden by selecting the proper hostas and other perennial plants.

At Plant Delights Nursery, we wholeheartedly recommend perennials such as hosta plants for your garden. Some hosta varieties produce novel flowers but all have beautiful, colorful foliage. Hosta plants will transform your garden with attractive leaves and interesting and colorful blooms. You will find many hostas as well as other plant offerings on our web site. We are committed to customer satisfaction and we pride ourselves on providing high quality perennial plants and exemplary customer service.
