Although miniature hostas are versatile, cute, and fun, it is the larger hostas that provide the bold statement and beautiful colors in shade gardens. Here clockwise from top: ‘Blue Angel’, ‘Flavocircinalis’, ‘Gold Bullion’, and ‘Striptease’.
I have explained in previous posts how my hosta addiction has progressed and focused on little hostas. However, that doesn’t mean that I neglect the larger hostas. I have my definite favorites there too. In fact, some of them are such favorites that, when I couldn’t buy them to sell to my customers, I decided to grow them myself just so they would be available for sale at Carolyn’s Shade Gardens. In this post, I am going to profile seven of those hostas, all of which I consider stars of the shade garden. Be sure to look at the mature specimens in my garden when you visit.
