Hosta

Excellent perennials for shade, Hostas’ spectacular foliage and low maintenance have made them the top choice for shade perennials. Lovely massed in woodland settings or used as specimens, Hosta also make wonderful ground covers. Most prefer shade to part shade locations, yet there are a few that tolerate more sun. Try mixing them with ferns and other lacy foliage plants like Astilbe and Aruncus for excellent foliage contrast.
