This plant combo made up of two hostas of varying size and foliage color, coupled with the golden yellow, evergreen foliage of Sundance Mexican orange is easy to care for and looks great for months on end in the garden. Morning sun and afternoon shade, with regular water would be the ideal growing conditions. Blooms, though they play second fiddle to foliage, are offered up in spring on the Mexican orange and the hostas have lavender flower spikes in summer. Deadhead as soon as the flowers fade to return to the foliage-focused display.
