"Fine Gardening" Item on Hostas

  • Subject: "Fine Gardening" Item on Hostas
  • From: CCREDUX@aol.com

In the December 2001 Fine Gardening issue, there is, in the "Q & A" section (p.80), an answer to a hosta question:"The leaves of my variegated hostas seem to turn all green in the summer. Why is this, and are there any varieties that don't."

The response is by Charles W.G. Smith "a horticulturist...from...Massachusetts."
In a rather lenghty answer which discusses plastids, etc., he advises to "avoid planting variegated hosta in sunny spots, or even in very bright shade."

Isn't the orthodox view to plant white-centered hostas in bright light?
