How do I make hostas healthier

Partially shaded beds. Light and shade for perennials and hydrangeas.

Partially shaded beds have many advantages for many plants. In contrast to sun beds, where the sun burns all summer, it is much more relaxed in shady and partially shaded beds. The soil stays moist longer and the plants do not suffer as much from the summer heat. The deeper the shade, the more these beds need sparkling flowers and / or perennials with variegated leaves.

Hostas (hostas) are ideal perennials for shady spots.

Decorative foliage plants are wonderful perennials for shady to partially shaded beds. Hostas are absolutely frugal and if you choose snail-resistant varieties, you won't have any trouble with them.

Lily of the valley and the romantic bleeding heart also bring light and color to partially shaded beds. And a lot of joy. Other plants that do well in partial shade: Hepatica, lungwort, violets, ferns and clematis.

Hydrangeas also love partial shade

Most hydrangeas do best in partial shade. Too much sun stresses them out and burns their flowers. Too little sun, the eternally thirsty trees with fewer flowers. So off with you in the penumbra - if you have and can.
