Green is the color of many hostas. However, this color green can be as varied as any other color. Greens range in color from lime green to a deep dark green. Some green hosta plants have shiny leaves where others are a more dull surface. As most plants in the plant kingdom are green, so are the majority of hosta plants. As green shade garden plants hostas tend to soften the landscape and should be used in the garden as well as other variations of colors. Texture also is a magnificent feature of green hostas, where some can have deep veined, wavy edges that make for very interesting hosta specimens.
