- Hosta is an ornamental groundcover plant world famous for its colored leaves, various leaf shapes, and flower shapes. Based on morphological observations and biological characteristics, 50 hosta cultivars were selected and evaluated according to ornamental characteristics, resistance, and propagation ability. The 26 best hosta cultivars were screened and applied to the Beijing Botanical Garden, which supplied the basic plant materials for Beijing landscape greening and improving landscape levels.
