I was out taking pictures of the beautiful summer flowers and realized I’d never photographed hostas for my blog. These shade-tolerant beauties are typically green, but some appear blue or gold, and other have variegation too. They come in a variety of sizes from 6” to three feet tall. They make a great background plant to show off more colorful varieties. When I lived in the woods in Northport, I learned that the deer enjoyed the hostas as much as I did. It was not uncommon to find them chewed on or even gone, thanks to the deer’s hearty appetites.
