Hostas are invaluable foliage plants with their broad leaves providing dramatic clumps of architectural interest in the garden. The sculptural leaves come in many sizes and although many are green, they range from powder blue to golden yellow and some have subtle variegation. This concise, illustrated handbook contains detailed information on all aspects of hosta care, providing invaluable reference for amateur gardeners and experienced growers alike. The straightforward approach to essential techniques, together with advice on tackling pests and other problems, and the directory of recommended varieties, will ensure successful results.
