GENERAL DESCRIPTION

ARGUABLY, THERE IS NO BETTER PERENNIAL FOR SHADE. HOSTA IS A CLUMP FORMING HERBACEOUS ORNAMENTAL GROWN MOSTLY FOR ITS ATTRACTIVE FOLIAGE

THE GENUS ORIGINATES FROM ASIA AND IS COMPRISED OF APPROXIMATELY 40 SPECIES. HOSTA IS A CLUMP FORMING HERBACEOUS ORNAMENTAL GROWN MOSTLY FOR ITS ATTRACTIVE FOLIAGE. THROUGHOUT THE GROWING SEASON THEY PRESENT CLUMPS OF FOLIAGE IN VARIOUS SHADES OF GREEN, BLUE, BLUE-GREY OR GOLD. SOME ALSO HAVE VARIEGATED MARKINGS OF WHITE, CREAM OR GOLD. THEIR FLOWERS ARE VARIABLE, BUT ARE GENERALLY TRUMPET, FUNNEL OR BELL SHAPED AND APPEAR ON TALL, STURDY STEMS. THESE MAY BE LAVENDER OR WHITE AND APPEAR FROM SPRING TO FALL, DEPENDING ON THE VARIANT.

OVERALL, HOSTA'S GROW BEST IN PARTIALLY SHADED SITES AND TOLERATE A WIDE RANGE OF SOIL TYPES. HOSTA'S HAVE AVERAGE WATER NEEDS, BUT PREFER EVEN MOISTURE, HOT AND DRY. HOSTA'S DISPLAY THEIR DISPLEASURE WITH MARGIN AND TIP-BURNS ON THE LEAVES. BEST USES FOR HOSTA'S ARE IN SHADED PERENNIAL GARDENS OR MASSED AS A GROUND COVER. "ALBOMARGINATA'S" CREAM-EDGED FOLIAGE BRIGHTENS UP SHADY AREAS OF THE GARDEN.

CARE OF BARE ROOT PERENNIALS

REMOVE THE PLANT FROM ITS PACKAGING AND CAREFULLY REMOVE ALL LOOSE PACKING MATERIAL. SOAK THE ROOTS IN A BUCKET OF WARM WATER FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES. EXAMINE THE ROOT SYSTEM AND TRIM AWAY ANY ROTTED, MOULDY OR BROKEN ROOTS WITH A SHARP KNIFE. DIG A HOLE DEEP AND WIDE ENOUGH TO ALLOW THE ROOTS TO FAN OUT FROM THE CROWN AT ABOUT 45º ANGLE.

IT SOMETIMES HELPS TO MAKE A CONE-SHAPED MOUND OF SOIL IN THE BOTTOM OF THE HOLE AND SPREAD THE ROOTS AROUND IT. REMEMBER THE CROWN OF MOST PERENNIALS SHOULD BE ROUGHLY LEVEL WITH THE SURROUNDING GROUND. COVER THE ROOTS WITH SOIL AND PRESS DOWN FIRMLY.MAKE SURE ALL THE ROOTS-ESPECIALLY THOSE UNDER THE CROWN-ARE IN CONTACT WIH THE SOIL. WATER THE PLANT WELL AND ADD A LAYER OF MULCH (SOIL COVERING)
