While hostas produce flowers, they are mostly grown for their bold foliage. These full hardy plants can be grown under deep-rooted trees as ground cover, in borders, or even near water. They grow best in moist, but well drained soil and most prefer shade with shelter from cold winds. For the lushest displays, feed with a balanced fertiliser between March and June. Do not feed after this period or you will encourage the sort of sappy growth that slugs adore. To avoid the leaves looking like a piece of lace, take measures against slugs and snails, such as beer traps. Hosta 'Maureen Iddon' produces yellow leaves with narrow green margins.
