What growing conditions do hostas like?
All hostas give their best in moist soil in partial shade, whether in the ground or a container. In general, though, yellow-leaved cultivars prefer some sun, along with a few hosta that are tolerant of sunny conditions.
What are the zones for hostas?
Zone: Hostas are winter hardy in zones 3-9. When to Plant: Hostas should be planted in spring when the soil is moist and relatively cool.
At what temperature should hostas be covered?
If weather forecasters report a drop in temperature to 32 ° F (0 ° C), then you should not risk and cover your hostas.
Can hostas tolerate heat?
Hostas can tolerate Florida heat; peonies need more cold.
Should I protect hostas from frost?
So, if certain hostas have emerged and the temperatures are going down into the 20s, find some way to cover them. Individual clumps could be covered with a plastic pot or tarp. Once the leaves are damaged, of course, they will never "heal" back together. If they bother you, cut them off and wait for new ones to emerge.
