For most strictly landscape purposes (as opposed to hosta collections), the primary design considerations are the plant's mature size and the leaf color. We have over 12,900 hosta names in our database and around 9,000 of those include descriptions of these traits. To help in making a selection of plants from this wide array of hostas, we have created dozens of data retrieval pages based on a number of size and color characteristics.

In terms of leaf color, we have divided the options into the three base colors: Green, Blue-Green and Yellow. Also included are lists of the base colors by size plus three types of variegation: Marginal, Medial (Center) and Streaked.
