The Hosta Comparison Chart is a list of common perennial hostas found at Johnson’s Nursery. Hostas are one of the most commonly grown part-shade to full-shade perennials. They have distinct foliage, long-stalk flowering habits, and summer bloom times. They can vary slightly in foliage color and can vary greatly in size. Hostas also have solid color or variegated leaf options. Nearly all hostas bloom in summer, starting in June or July and ending in July, August, or September.
Hostas are one of the best plants when you can’t get anything else to grow. They’re durable, versatile, and virtually maintenance-free. They’re easily divided after a couple of seasons to spread more around or keep them contained. Hostas play well together so you can plant a variety. No varieties of hosta are native to Wisconsin. They’re also known to be Rabbit Resistant in southeastern Wisconsin.
