This is a vast range of Hostas to choose from if you like them. Here two are planted in the same spot as Arum italicum, As the arum dies down the hostas takes over for the summer. The flowers are racemes of purple flowers, but other Hostas give a range of colours from white through pink to purple. Hostas are loved by slogs and snails which will devour them with relish. I overcome this by two methods. One is having plenty of organic matter in the soil which keeps the slugs in the ground and two spraying the underside of the leaves with liquid sluggit.
