Hosta decorata, like most hostas, is a good choice for shade or woodland gardens, as it likes moist, sandy soil in a shady spot. It is also a strong perennial that will survive a frosty winter.
This hosta species is characterized by its attractive, wide, white-rimmed leaves. Numerous lilac, trumpet-shaped flowers appear in panicles in midsummer, and the plant spreads to form a ground cover.
