“I have a few hostas with white flowers. Good for borders and in shady spots. My favorite hostas are the ones with golden-variegated leaves. I need to get a couple of those.”

About this topic

Wiki

Hosta (pronounced /ˈhɒstə/,[1] syn.: Funkia) is a genus of about 23–45 species of lily-like plants native to northeast Asia. They were once classified in the Liliaceae but are now included in the Agavaceae by the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group, although some taxonomists place the Hostas in their own family: Hostaceae. The scientific name is also used as the common name; in the past they were also sometimes called the Corfu Lily, the Day Lily, or the Plantain lily, but these terms are now obsolete. The name Hosta is in honor of the Austrian botanist Nicholas Thomas Host.[2] The Japanese name Giboshi is also used in English to a small extent. The rejected generic name Funkia, also used as a common name, can be found in some older literature.
