Uncommon, Unusual, and Unique Hostas


Fragrant hostas like Hosta plantaginea, at one time referred to as August Lilies, are a flowering perennial that fills the air with a wonderful and delicate scent. A number of the more fashionable fragrant hostas today are Hosta plantaginea, Hosta plantaginea ‘Ming Treasure’, Hosta ‘Fragrant Bouquet’, Hosta ‘Guacamole’, Hosta ‘Stained Glass’, Hosta ‘Cathedral Windows’, Hosta ‘Holy Mole’, Hosta ‘Diana Remembered’, Hosta ‘Fragrant Queen’, Hosta ‘Old Faithful’, Hosta ‘Sugar and Spice’, Hosta ‘The Shining’, and Hosta ‘Mistress Mabel’. Hosta plants thrive in light shade needing only a couple of hours of morning sun.

Hosta plants are not “shade” plants per se. They do well in shady areas but they do prefer some morning sunlight.
