Shadowland Hudson Bay Hosta Care
Plant the Hudson hosta in a location that receives at least partial shade. The plant also grows in full shade. Hostas love neutral or acidic soil and are easy to care for. As long as your Shadowland Hudson Bay Hosta grows in fairly fertile soil, you don't need to fertilize it. If you want to use fertilizer, choose a flow-release formula. The only pruning your plant needs is removal of yellowed, dead or damaged leaves and cutting off stalks after blooms wilt.
Shadowland Hudson Bay Hosta Spacing
Be sure to give your hosta plenty of room to grow in container arrangements. For borders and mass plantings, space your Shadowland Hostas 20 to 24 inches apart from one center to the next.
