Variegated hosta plants are the most purchased hostas today. Variegated hostas have white, cream, blue, gold or yellow in their leaves that may look like solid patterns, blotches or stripes. ‘Marginate’ variegation is when variegation occurs on the margin of the hosta’s leaves. ‘Medio variegation’ is when variegation is in the center of the hosta’s leaves. There are so many combinations of variegation whether it is a bright gold center, blue center, white center, green center or the reverse of these colors on the edge or margin. Here at Pine Forest Gardens we like to plant variegated hosta plants and use one of the colors of the leaf and plant a solid color plant next to it using that same color.
