I see, in the picture, that this is planted with other types of hostas. Some have big ribbed leaves, almost like a corrugated box, and others are small chartreuse leaved hostas. Maybe that's a mistake that so many people make...planting so many of the same variety together. Much more interesting, to my eyes, to have different varieties. To each his own. No matter how they are planted...they are the plants to have, when all you have is shade.
