PERENNIALS: HOSTA (K-Q)

All Hostas are Zones 3-9.
Long lived, carefree, shade tolerant plants with beautiful leaves, hostas keep their tidy look all season and come in all sizes.  Stalks of white to lavender, lily-like blooms appear midseason.  One of the easiest plants to grow and divide, they like well-drained soil and are shade loving with some varieties tolerating sun.
