How far apart do you plant Hosta?

To fill in areas, you should space large hostas about 30 to 36 inches apart, medium-sized hostas 18 to 24 inches apart, small hostas at 12 to 18 inches and the dwarf varieties closest at 6 to 8 inches.

Also to know is, how many hostas can you plant together?

You can also combine hostas with the same leaf color, but make sure they differ in another characteristic. If you want to plant two blue hostas close to each other, select one that has large leaves and one that has small leaves.

Similarly, how fast do hostas spread? Summary. I found that, after sprouting, hosta plants will grow at about 1/2 inch per day and reach full growth in about 30 to 35 days. Mine started sprouting at the end of March, but it will depend on the area you live and and the weather that year. It will sprout earlier and grow faster if it's a warm spring.

One may also ask, how do you plant hosta bulbs?

Plant the hosta bulbs 12 inches or more apart and at the ground level where the shoots first emerge. Of course, the root end of the bulb should be placed down into the ground. Gently fill the area surrounding the bulb with soil and then pack lightly at ground level.

How early can I plant hostas?

When to plant: The best times to plant hostas are when they are actively making new roots, in the spring after the first flush of leaves has hardened off and in late summer once the hottest weather is past. Here in North Carolina that is usually early May and late August.
