The Q&A Archives: Help Growing Hostas

Question: I wanted to know If I can grow Hostas in the high desert of California.

Answer: Hostas will grow in your gardening zone. They love shade and rich, moist soil. Expect the leaves to die down in the winter. When they do, remove dead foliage and mulch over the tops of the plants. New leaves will sprout as soon as the weather warms up in spring.
