Plant Elegans Hosta where it will get no more than four hours of direct sunlight. These are perennials for partial to full shade.

Most Hosta do best with consistent moisture. Get your Elegans established in your soil with a schedule of supplemental water the first season.

After that, this particular variety can tolerate longer dry periods than others. Mulch over the root system to reduce surface evaporation, then pull it back away from the stems.

If Elegans Hosta doesn't get a moderate amount of water, the leaves become more glaucous. This silvery-gray overcast is quite attractive and works to protect the large leaves from drying out.

Use this low care perennial in shady woodland settings, foundation plantings or in a large garden container. This giant Hosta offers effortless style for many years, making it a favorite for beginners and experienced gardeners alike.

Underplant your flowering ornamental trees with this outstanding shade garden workhorse. You'll gain an incredible designer look.
