Hosta

Blazing Saddles Hosta forms thick clumps of dark green leaves with wide cream margins that mature to white. In mid summer, lavender lily-like flowers rise up on long stems high above the foliage. These blooms can be cut for fresh flower arrangements and may attract hummingbirds.

Hostas are extremely popular, hardy herbaceous perennials grown primarily for their beautiful foliage. They are easy to grow, shade-tolerant plants. Leaves come in a wide range of shapes, colors, sizes, and textures and may be solid in color or variegated in different combinations of blue, green, white, and gold. The plants are low maintenance.  Hostas originally came from Japan, China, and Korea.  They were first introduced to Europe in the late 1700s and then came to the United States in the middle 1800s.
