A great variety for mass planting, Hosta Hyacinthina features ribbed green foliage that adds wonderful texture and color to shaded areas. Fragrant, violet flowers bloom above the foliage in the summer. Growing 18-24" tall, this popular variety gives landscapes and gardens a professional look—and it's ideal for naturalizing, providing sparkling color for years. Hosta lilies, sometimes called "Plantain" or "Heart Lilies," are some of the best perennials for shade and woodland gardens. These shade-loving perennials are tolerant of a wide variety of soil types, but prefer well-drained soil.
