Smaller hosta varieties (up to 12 inches tall) are ideal for rock gardens and make a good edging along paths or the front of a bed. Large hostas are great used as a background or as a dramatic accent plant. Medium sized hostas make excellent ground cover. Use variegated hostas - cultivars with white, cream or golden edged leaves to lighten up shady corners.
