I love my hostas! If I had divided them as you should, I could have made a beautiful large bed! I intend to separate them every year and all of a sudden they have grown to a point that I hate to dig them up and risk losing them. Do you have hostas? Do you separate them? My dad and his wife started with one hosta and divided them every year and ended up with a beautiful bed that lined the fence in their backyard.
Taken from Hosta Society:
Hostas are easy to grow, shade tolerant, herbaceous perennials. Hostas are grown mainly for their beautiful foliage. Hosta leaves come in a wide range of shapes, colors, sizes, and textures. One common name for Hosta still used in some garden centers is Plantain Lily. Hostas are sometimes still referred to as Funkia. But the real name for hosta is Hosta.
Hostas are native to Japan, Korea, and China. They were first imported and grown in Europe in the late 1700’s. By the mid-1800’s hosta were growing in the United States.
Have a good day all!
