This ground cover can take some dampness and is not as drought tolerant as other ground covers.  Needs more shade in hot areas .

Use Isotoma as a lawn substitute, around pools, pavers, edging and pots. If you plant it near grass, it wills start to blend in.

Container Gardening – Quick & Easy Idea

Container Gardening with shade loving Hosta

Container Gardening with shade loving Hosta

I like to do a number of containers with Hosta since they are a hardy shade perennial with beautiful foliage & easy to care for. I was looking for something to dress up my shaded front entryway. I had a black pot and wanted something with yellow foliage.

Here’s this simple container recipe:

-1 black container
-3 Hosta Lemon Lime (1 qt pots)
-Few stones for contrast

In the winter, I put the whole pot in my storage shed and try to water it in February or so because the roots will get rather dry and then change the soil early in the season before the shoots are up.  One year, I forgot about this pot completely and the shoots had turned white and were 3″ tall.  I simply cut these shoots back when I finally placed it outside for the season and they rebounded nicely with their normal color.

This container garden took me about 10 minutes to plant and has given me so far over 3 years of season long enjoyment.  If you wanted to mix and match this up a bit – you can use a bright colored Heuchera such as Berry Smoothie.

Hosta Lemon Lime is available at GreatGardenPlants.com
