Wishing Well Hosta
Wishing Well is so richly textured, so intensely colored, that it leaves other blue-leaved Hostas in . . . well, in the shade! Colorfast to andfrac23;rds day of sun, its large leaves and compact habit will wow you in border and container. Just under 2 feet tall and just over 3 feet wide, this beautifully mounding Hosta sets leaves up to 11 inches long and 9 inches wide, deeply corrugated even from a young age. Slightly twisted and wavy, the foliage is nicely cupped, particularly in heavier shade, and keeps both its texture and its blue-green tones in partial sun. Stunning! In midsummer, lavender blooms on 26- to 29-inch stems top the foliage, attracting butterflies to the shade, but the real attraction is the amazing foliage. No more going green when the weather heats up or the sun becomes stronger! No more flattening out of cupped, rippled leaves! Wishing Well stays true! Don Dean introduced this fine cultivar, and we heartily recommend it for containers, the border, and the woodland garden. Such blue hues are hard to find in the Hosta family, and such handsome texture a rarity indeed! You will love this Hosta. Zones 3-9.… read more

Keep your hostas healthy and thriving -- or simply make more to spread through your garden or to share with friends with these easy tips for dividing hostas.
This plant hardly grown 40 years ago is now one of the most commonly grown garden plants. But hosta has earned its spot in the hearts of gardeners -- it's among the easiest plants to grow, as long as you have some shade and ample rainfall. Hostas vary from tiny plants suitable for troughs or rock gardens to massive 4-foot clumps with heart-shape leaves almost 2 feet long that can be puckered, wavy-edged, white or green variegated, blue-gray, chartreuse, emerald-edged -- the variations are virtually endless. Hostas in new sizes and touting new foliage features seem to appear each year. This tough, shade-loving perennial, also known as plaintain lily, blooms with white or purplish lavender funnel-shape or flared flowers in summer. Some are intensely fragrant. Hostas are a favorite of slug and deer.
The perfect plant for adding summer drama to the shade garden, cimicifuga bears white, candle-like flowers on plants that can reach 7 feet tall. Even when not in bloom, its fine-textured foliage adds interest, especially when paired with hostas. This plant is native to areas of North America. Note: You may sometimes see Cimicifuga listed as the botanical name because botanists have reclassified it as Actaea. It grows best in moist, well-drained soil that's rich in organic matter.
Should the tall-stem flowers growing out of the hosta plants be cut or pulled out in order to let the leaves become more full?
Blanket flowers are wonderfully cheerful, long-blooming plants for hot, sunny gardens. They produce single or double daisy flowers through most of the summer and well into fall. The light brick red ray flowers are tipped with yellow -- the colors of Mexican blankets. Blanket flowers tolerate light frost and are seldom eaten by deer. Deadhead the flowers to keep them blooming consistently through the summer and into fall. Some species tend to be short-lived, especially if the soil is not well drained.
Brighten your home, as well as your garden, with these cut-and-come-back perennial flowers.
Use beautiful maidenhair ferns to add an airy, delicate texture to the shade garden. There's something almost magical about the plants, especially when paired with a coarser plant, such as hosta. Maidenhair ferns are lovely when grouped in a shady, moist, well-drained location, forming a fine-textured mass.

Valued for its unusual flower shape, blazing star sends up erect spires of usually magenta, sometimes white flowers. Emerging from grasslike foliage, the blooms make a dramatic statement in flower gardens with other perennials, annuals, or even shrubs. Well-drained but moisture-retentive soil is a must for this prairie native.
There's an amazing number of hostas available in different sizes, shapes, and colors. Discover which will look best in your yard.
The pincushion-like flowers of knautia are a striking reddish-purple color. They are carried on slender branched stems that weave gracefully among nearby plants. Knautia is ideal for cottage or wild gardens as well as more formal sites. It thrives in well-drained, alkaline soil.
Showy, brightly colored flowers are saucer-shape, sometimes semidouble, over loose mounds of handsome dark strawberrylike leaves. Many of the best cultivars are hybrids between species. These plants do best in a well-drained, rich soil.
Lupine draws the eye skyward with its gorgeously colored and interestingly structured flower spikes. Bicolor Russell hybrids are the most popular type. Their large pea-like flowers come in amazing colors and combinations, clustered in long spikes on sturdy stems. Lupine prefers light, well-drained soil that is slightly acidic, and it does not tolerate heat or humidity well. It performs best in areas with cool summers, especially the Pacific Northwest.
Chrysanthemums are a must-have for the fall garden. No other late-season flower delivers as much color, for as long and as reliably as good ol' mums. Beautiful chrysanthemum flowers, available in several colors, bring new life to a garden in the fall. Some varieties have daisy blooms; others may be rounded globes, flat, fringed, quill shape, or spoon shape. They work exceptionally well in container plantings and pots.
