    Design IdeasThe yellow leaf edges of this popular Hosta bring light into deeply shaded gardens. Try behind shorter plants and spot into emerald green foliage plants that could use some contrast. Plant as clumps among acid-loving flowering shrubs. Excellent in shaded rock gardens, on slopes and embankments and low, moist pockets. Later in the season, enjoy the bright flower spikes that add interest and variety to the foliage.
