Posted: Updated:
Garden Guy Dale K. embarks on a hosta road test -- one of the most common perennials in the Minnesota garden. Here's your gardener's guide from the expert himself.

DALE'S TIPS

1. Plant in a shady area -- these guys thrive out of the sun
2. Use a little slow-release fertilizer for the best blooms
3. Use 3 inches of mulch around the base of the plants to retain moisture
4. Miniatures: Mouse Ears, Twist of Lime -- both make for great container accents
5. Blue Ivory hosta have lots of color variation in the leaves
6. Guacamole hosta develops a two-tone greenish leaf
