Hostas - How do you keep the deer from eating your hostas? I live nearby and the deer eat them to the ground every year :(

Ann: I use Liquid Fence and Repels All. But - you have to start spraying early in the spring and when they are growing fast I spray twice per week. Ignore the label that says it lasts 2 months. I don't know where you live, but the deer population in Ohio is so aggressive, they are eating plants that are supposed to be "resistant." I spray at least once per week all summer. Even with that they will still get to a few of them. Hope this helps.

This is 'Sum & Substance' and is one of the hostas that can take all day sun - unless the temp is over 90, in which case only morning sun or it will burn. Any hosta with more yellow, lime green or a lighter color can take at least morning sun. All day sun in Zone 4 or less. Sum & Substance will reach 6 to 7 feet across and 4 feet high. The older a hosta is, the larger it will get (depending on the cultivar).

PS Hostas hate heat - it's a fallacy that they must be in shade - unless the temp is over 85 or 90.

What are the vines growing up the pergola? Are these shade loving vines?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lime hostas are another great choice for shade, bringing pops of vibrancy into dark corners.
Debra Prinzing added this to Ornament Your Garden the Artful Way
Artwork in the garden should be highly personal. It can be anything from playful to restrained. Some gardeners take a curatorial approach to their ornamentation choices, isolating a cherished urn on a pedestal. Others prefer the organic approach of letting objects and plants happily commingle. This scene is a happy hybrid. The architectural and sculptural design elements are surrounded by hostas, which are framed by a beautiful pergola and aligned perfectly with the stepping stone path. This is a composition of beauty.
