These plants are known to be excellent shade plants and have nearly become the foundations to the idea of shade gardens. The size of these leaves is the most noticeable factor in these plants.
Right from giant hosta varieties which shoot up to a height of 28'' to dwarf varieties which are no taller than 4'' in height, the size is their striking feature. These plants come in various shapes such as round, oval, elliptical, lance-shaped, broadly-oval, etc.
Having been popular gardening plants for years, hostas have now become one of the largest selling perennial plants in the US. Hosta breeders are diligently cultivating and exercising these lovely shade-loving plants in order to exert them in the heat.
These plants lose their charm and color due to constant exposure to sunlight. Even though there are types that are grown for sustaining the charring sunrays, you or your gardener will have to mulch them and water regularly.
