Add Hostas to Your Shaded Areas for Beautiful Landscaping

If you are looking for a perennial that can take a bit of abuse and still thrive, Hostas are an excellent choice for most gardeners. Hostas are lovely perennials that provide a variety of foliage colors and patterns. Some varieties of hostas will greet you with beautiful flowers during the warmer months. Hosta plants are excellent choices for areas around hardscaping such as decks and porches. Hostas are woodland shade plants so they do not require full sunlight every day, so you can plant hostas in shaded garden areas where other perennials will not grow. Plant Delights Nursery offers a wide variety of hostas and other perennial plants that are also shade tolerant.

You can grow a beautifully unique garden with hosta plants. Some hostas have leaves that are heart-shaped while other hostas have round or lance-shaped leaves. Hosta leaf colors can range from shades of green to yellow, white and cream, and blue. Hosta 'Cathedral Windows’, 'Pandora’s Box’ and 'Liberty’ are just a few examples of hostas that offer varying colored foliage. Plant Delights Nursery offers a wide selection of the top hostas and provides information on our website regarding care for hostas and other perennials.

Hostas are hardy shade plants that can also provide your garden with a summer floral fragrance. Some hosta varieties have a sweet smell that many gardeners find appealing. Although most gardeners choose hostas because of their beautiful foliage, flowers and fragrance are added bonuses with some hosta varieties. In addition to hostas, Plant Delights Nursery offers a large selection of other perennials including elephant ears, pitcher plants, Jack-in-the-Pulpit, coneflowers and many others. We collaborate with top plant breeders to breed and evaluate new plant introductions of hardy hostas as well as less-hardy exotic tropical plants.

We also have Open Nursery and Garden Days where you can come and view our selection of hostas and other perennial plants, or you can simply order online through our online mail order catalog.
