Design IdeasShort 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.
