Shades of Green
We are a plant nursery
in Wisconsin specializing in hostas and licensed by the WI Dept. of Agriculture. We are sure you will find, as we
have, that hostas are an excellent addition to every landscape.
They can vary in size, color, leaf shape and texture and always make a
dramatic statement in every garden. Hostas
have many uses in the landscape, including use in the front of the border or as
specimen plants. They may be
planted in groups or used as groundcovers.
Hostas come in colors of yellow, gold and chartreuse, blue and “Shades
of Green.” Yellow
and gold hostas lighten up darker areas and blues soften a garden’s look.
There are beautifully variegated varieties with striking combinations of
green, blue, yellow, cream and pure white!
Some even have large, fragrant flowers.
We take pride in providing a wide variety of outstanding hostas of
superb size and quality and we are glad to help with questions you may
