    Design IdeasUse this enormous Hosta to fill lots of space in the shade garden. Plant under trees and in front of cool-colored shrubs. Its purple flowers and frosty blue leaves present a very unique foliage color in the garden and is best combined with creamy variegated plants rather than those with golden variegation.
