Many visitors ask why our hostas show no slug damage. Even though we do have slugs, as most gardens have, we do not use slug pelets. Some of our plants have resistance but we also beleive that if you plant hostas en mass you wont notice the damage. See Gallery/Flowers/Hosta Beds.
A few slug resistant hosta blues are ‘Blue Mammoth’, ‘Blue Plate Special’, ‘Blue Shadows’, ‘Krossa Regal’, and ‘Reptillian’.
Heavier and tougher leaves are generally characteristic of hosta that are slug resistant.
‘Sum and Substance’, is a gold leafed hosta that will brighten up any shady garden area.
This large hosta will grow up to 36″h and up to 80″w.
