Many gardeners prefer hostas because of their durability. Hosta plants are hardy perennials and will grow well in partially shaded areas. Hosta plants are very diverse in size and range in height from 2 inches to more than 3 feet. Their widths can range from 6 inches to more than 6 feet. Most hostas are hardy in USDA growing zones 3 through 8. If you are unsure of just which hardiness zone you are in or you are having difficulty in choosing the right perennials for your garden, Plant Delights Nursery can help.
