|Design Ideas||Short Hosta like this one are perfect for groundcover or as an edging plant. If it's variegated, as this one is, these applications are even more dramatic. Keep in front of taller Hosta or other plants that may block the view. Perfect for weaving in and out of rock garden stones or to highlight a hidden flagstone path. Plant with muted cool-colored flowers from purple to blue, very pale pink and white to avoid overwhelming.|
|Companion Plants||Coral Bells (Heuchera); Ligularia (Ligularia); Japanese Forest Grass (Hakonechloa); Lungwort (Pulmonaria); Bleeding Heart (Dicentra)|
|Care||Provide slightly acidic, evenly moist, well-drained, humusy soil. Avoid harsh sun exposures. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge in early spring.|
|Lore||Hosta was named by the Austrian, Leopold Trattinick who honored his friend and fellow countryman, Dr. N.T. Host.|
