Hosta is a genus of plants widely grown by gardeners as fantastic shade tolerant plants with excellent foliage and tiny purple flowers. These plants are native to China, Japan, Korea, and Russia. Hostas are low maintenance perennial plants that have large leaves that come in a wide variety of colors and patterns. Colors include blue-green, lime-green and dark-green, as well as variegated versions. Hostas can grow anywhere from 6 inches tall all the way up to 4 feet tall!
