The Q&A Archives: hostas

Question: I was living in NY , and I moved to Florida and a like the Hostas plants but a noticed tha i don't see tha particular plants in any of the houses . Can you tollme why?

Answer: Omaira,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Hostas cannot take the warm winters and hot, humid and very long summer of the south very well. A few folks have been able to get some varieties to grow in moist, compost rich soil in a very bright shade location but mostly farther north than your location.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
