Hosta: A Guide to Growing and Caring for 3 Stunning Varieties







Sum and Substance is a popular hosta variety that is known for its large size and bright yellow-green leaves. This variety can grow up to 3 feet tall and wide, making it a great option for filling in large spaces in a shade garden.


Sum and Substance hostas prefer partial to full shade and well-draining soil. They can also tolerate some sun exposure, but it is important to make sure they receive enough moisture during the hottest parts of the day.


In terms of care, Sum and Substance hostas do not require much maintenance. They can benefit from regular watering, especially during dry spells, and occasional fertilization in the spring. It is also important to keep the area around the hostas weed-free, as competition for nutrients and water can stunt their growth.
