Beautiful Review by MiMi - Richmond , VA

I was so excited when I rcv my order that I went online to see how to plant them. (my 1st time planting)I let the roots soak first in muddy water and planted them the next day. I'm so excited about my garden that everyday something new is popping up. The dont look like the picture they look better. Not quit full but the leaves are sooooo healthy and spreading out. I do want to order some more but I just dont wont to wait on the shipment. But they are just lovely in my garden.

So happy! Review by Loen Onsrud - Mankato, MN

I purchased this mix in early spring 13. Right around when the ground could be worked in my zone 4 area. They arrived within a reasonable amount of time, and I had received email updates the whole while. I was a bit afraid that they would die off because I wasn't able to get them in the ground for about two weeks after they arrived due to a freak snow storm that dropped a foot and a half of snow on us. When everything melted, I got the bare roots out into the dirt and honestly, within a week they were poking through! I am extremely pleased with the hardiness of these little guys. The mix included Albo Marginata, Gold Standard, and Patriot. They came bare root in a bag, not individually labeled. It could make garden planning difficult. They are all pretty and vibrant so I didn't mind.

When adding some ground cover to your garden space, you don't need huge flowers - try a mix of hostas for a variety variety of textures and multi-colored foliage types. Compact growth and fine flowers make these hosta plants a welcome addition to shady spots in your yard. Shade-loving plants, the Hosta Mix does best in areas which see partial to total shade and should be in soil that drains well. To plant a hosta, make sure that at least one to two inches of soil are above the buds and that the soil is packed firm and watered well. Since this mix includes multiple varieties, you'll see multiple plant sizes. Depending on the variety, they can grow anywhere from 15 to 36 inches in height, have a spread range of anywhere from 20 to 60 inches and should be spaced about the same distance apart. Again, dimensions will depend on the variety of the plant. A perennial plant, the Hosta Mix has a moderate growth rate and typically flowers in mid-summer, sporting purple and white flowers of a trumpet shape on the top third of the stems. Its foliage can be narrow lanceolate to heart-shaped to almost round and in a range of colors and textures. Aside from pruning spent flower stems to tidy up the hosta plants after the blooming period, the hosta requires little care to do well.
