What plants should you pair with your hostas? The possibilities seem endless, especially since hostas are one of the most versatile plants we offer. They come in an array of shapes, colors, and sizes, which means they play well with others but can also create a dynamic garden all on their own. We’ll spell out our favorite companion plants for hostas to get you started.
Hostas are known for commanding attention in the shade garden. Thick corrugated leaves form graceful mounds of foliage that keep their appeal from spring to fall. Their versatility is what makes them extra special, apart or together. No matter which shape, size, color, or textured hostas you choose, you can count on them being reliable and easy to grow in containers, garden beds, and city environments.
