Hosta plant is one hearty plant that once you get a good start of it, it is hard to get rid of. Hosta can be found at most local garden centers, home improvement centers, online nurseries and mail order catalogs in small 4 inch or 6 inch containers.

Hosta is a bulb plant that means it is grown from a bulb and we all know with bulbs once you can get a good start of them then you have a plant that can last a lifetime. Hosta is a rarely hearty plant that once it takes off can grow and thrive forever.

Hosta is a great plant that makes for a good investment because it adds value to your home as well as a great look. Hosta, since it is grown from a bulb grows in almost any type of condition, but does the best in partial shade. Hosta grows well in well drained or moist soil and can adapt to almost any type of soil condition as long as it has shade. When Hosta is in full bloom it has long wide leaves that are light green and dark green striped with a long, slender green stem that grows out with a small purple flower on it.

Once you get a great clump of Hosta you can split them up and replant them in other locations which gives them a name of easily transplanted and also an investment plant. Hostas look great planted around decks, patios, walkways and driveways or spread throughout natural areas.
