Hosta are shade garden dependables. There are over 7000 registered cultivars. They come in a huge range of size (both leaf and plant), leaf colouring, variegation, growth rate and slug resistance. Though there are many hosta that survive the most grueling spots of sun and dry soil, surviving is not thriving, and you will find the most successful are planted in moist spots that get some shade-like where slugs thrive. 'Stained Glass' is an improvement on Hosta Guacamole; huge bright shiny golden leaves with dark green margins. Fragrant pale lavender flowers in late summer. Sun tolerant. Hosta of the Year 2006.
