Hostas prefer to be grown in average or fertile soil as long as it stays moist and is well-draining.


Hosta plants thrive in shade (< 4 hours sun) to part sun (4-6 hours sun). Morning sun and afternoon shade are ideal for hosta plants, especially in hotter climates.


Hostas have average water needs, and once established, they have some tolerance for dry shade (particularly plants with thick leaves). The soil should not dry out for the best growth.


In spring, a light fertilizer can be applied around the emerging hosta. However, it may not be necessary if your garden has fertile soil.


Slugs lay their eggs in dead hosta foliage, and removing leaves after frost will deter slugs from returning in spring. Cut the foliage back in late fall, but leave 4-6 inches standing to protect the crown over winter. In cold climates, spread an extra layer of mulch (2″ thick) for added insulation.

Maintenance & Pruning:

Hostas don’t require much maintenance, but you can groom plants by removing yellow or dead leaves and cutting flower spikes back as they finish blooming in summer.

Cheers for Mouse Ears

All my MouseEars Hostas are wonderful! Last years and the new ones for this year. I love this little plant and they all seem very content in my garden. Thanks!

Perfect for small shaded spaces

The contrasts with other plants of size, shape and color of leaves is pleasing. Flowers bring in spring are pretty with soft color.

Perfect! Exceeded my expections!

I received my first order from GGP today and it definitely won't be my last. I was hesitant ordering online because I've had bad experiences before. The 14 hostas arrived in perfect condition. No broken leaves, very healthy and looking great! I can't wait to plant them. They are much larger than I expected with strong root systems. Great care was taken in how the plants were packaged which provided excellent possible shipping damage protection. Most of the pots have 3 or 4 hostas in each pot. There only 2 pots that have only one plant. Plants arrived in two days. Thank you!!!!

Wonderful Little Hostas

The pots are small ... yes ... but the plants are as bigger than the one I bought from a local green house in a 6" pot. Super healthy (the one in the center and on the right are from GGP. The one on the left from local garden center). They came beautifully packaged and in perfect condition (as have all the plants I have ordered from Great Garden Plants). Thank you GGP!
