Hosta: You can grow Hostas just about anywhere. While they thrive on a little sunlight, they're also very tolerant of the shade. Their bold leaves - grey-green, striped with white or gold - are the prettiest part of the plant, although the tall flower stems appearing in summer add interest too. They require very little care - just pay attention to them in spring with some organic fertilizer.
