Hosta perennialize well up to Zone 3 and multiply readily. While hostas due produce flowers, they are quite insignificant to the overall beauty of the plant which is grown primarily for its foliage. Besides being a favorite dinner for deer and slugs, this plant is relatively easy to grow and care for. Spacing of these plants varies depending on the variety. Hosta root starts should be planted just below the ground's surface, covered by no more than 2" of soil.
