General Information

Water regularly; do not overwater

In the past they were also sometimes called the Corfu Lily, the Day Lily, or the Plantain lily. The Japanese name Giboshi is also used in English to a small extent. The rejected generic name Funkia, also used as a common name, can be found in some older literature.

Hostas have Pale Lavender trumpet shaped flowers that, while sometimes fragrant, are not very showy.

Slugs and snails love hostas!

Once mistakenly classified in the family of Liliaceae, hosta is now classified in the family of Agavaceae

Hostas with yellow leaves do better in full sun, while the green- and blue-leaved hostas do best in partial or full shade.
