HOSTAS
    For many years I made indoor foliage houseplants, but needing a breath of fresh air, I ventured outside to my own garden. I only make in miniature what I can actually grow, and the numerous, and I mean numerous Hosta varieties in my own garden have inspired a new direction into the world of Hostas. Upon closer inspection I have found that they are not as similar as I thought. There are shiny leaves, satin leaves, and leaves with a waxy "glaucous" finish that disappears from handling, water, or sunlight revealing a Hosta of a different color. There are heart-shaped leaves, spear-shaped leaves, ovate leaves, very small leaves, very large leaves, and everything inbetween. New growth may not look anything like the mature leaf, and by the middle of the summer some Spring colors may have morphed into something colorful and exiting, or not.
Hostas & Ostrich Fern

Hostas are some of the most durable plants in those gardens that freeze in the winter. They pop up early every Spring and hang around well after most plants have succumbed to the cold. They don't turn brown in spots as readily as houseplants do, they survive in areas where nothing else does, and they keep weeds at bay. Their Achilles heel is their flavor, sought after by rabbits, deer, and the sneaky, slimy slug waiting under the leaves until an unsuspecting gardener breaks off a leaf to examine it for a miniature version and ends up with unbelievably
sticky slime on her hands that moves! (Since then I never touch a leaf without checking it first!) But even slugs shy away from the blue Hostas with the waxy finish.


In the macro world, many people with limited yard space or apartment dwellers with only a balcony have discovered that Hostas can be grown quite well in containers, a perfect solution for the miniature house with little to no yard at all. Most of my Hostas are planted in soil disks, but they can all be planted in any container appropriate for their size. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination!

Hosta stems can be rearranged to fit into
"the perfect spot".
