Re: Hostas in the woods

I grow some hostas in deep shade of oak woods.  They are slower to grow, but
the leaves get bigger.  There will not be so many divisions and very little
bloom, maybe one bloom stalk on a mature plant.  If you can tolerate this,
then go ahead and plant.  There are a lot of other shade tolerant plants that
will also go in a woodland area like that, too.  Ferns, celadine poppies,
pulmonarias, gingers, epimediums, wild geraniums, soloman's seal ( variegated
and the giant), ajuga, and etc.
