Hosta or hostas are the most popular, low maintenance, shade tolerant plant in North America! Hostas come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, colors, and are quite disease and pest free. The pictures on our site are often of mature plants. Perennials can take 3 to 5 years to fully mature and exhibit their final colors, texture and form. Many plants have seasonal color or can change color based upon growing conditions. Thus, the starter plants you receive may not match all of the pictures but will with maturity.
