Hosta of the Year for 2016 is “Curly Fries“.
I Love Hostas! Every year I buy hostas. I buy them at garden centres, plant sales and friends will give me hostas from their gardens. You can plant them in sun or shade which makes them a beautiful addition to any garden. Hosta plants come in sizes small to exlarge. Sum and Substance is one of my favorites. There are so many hostas , over 8,000 registered, there is a Hostapedia for the hostaholic.
Some tips for caring for your hosta plant:
- lighter foliage needs brighter sun;
- deeper darker foliage is best in moderate shade;
- variegated varities need more sun to keep their white and gold stripes;
- all hostas need some shade, they do not like strong direct sunlight;
For all you Hostaholics, here is some information on the 6th Annual Hosta Forum.
Enjoy your Hostas!
