Durable to dainty, hostas can find a niche in almost any garden. Most are sun tolerant in heavy, moist soils, although in some situations the pale green to gold and white variegated leaf forms can burn, so use care in your selection and placement. As hosta clumps mature, they become congested and less regular, with more and more overlapping leaves in odd directions. This is the time to divide. You can divide hostas in spring, fall or late winter. Companion plants for hostas are ferns, astilbe, dicentra, geraniums or primula.
