Grown for their decorative foliage, Hostas make superb ground cover. These hardy perennials form dense mounds of foliage in a multitude of shapes and colours, which are complimented by upright flower spikes in summer. Perfect for lightly shaded areas where they will appreciate some protection from the midday sun. Mass them together in generous clumps for a spectacular display in perennial borders, or plant them into patio containers as individual specimens. Keep slugs under control and these resilient, easy-grow, hardy perennials will reward you with a show of fresh colourful foliage each spring, lasting right through to autumn.
Hosta 'Francee' - Tough and weatherproof with foliage that is deeply ribbed and edged in jagged, cream margins. Height: 55cm (22"). Spread: 100cm (39").
Hosta 'September Sun' - Golden leaves with irregular dark green margins that still look good towards the end of summer. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 100cm (39").
Hosta 'Marmalade on Toast' - Corrugated, heart shaped, blue-green foliage with gently wavy margins. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 100cm (39").

Culinary note: The best part to use is the hoston, the rolled up leaf as it emerges in the spring. Cooking depends on the size of the hostons, small ones can be fried for a few minutes, going well in stir fries. Thicker ones are better boiled and used as a vegetable.
