The Hosta tardiflora bears even very harsh temperatures, therefore it can be grown outdoors without feeling endangered by low temperatures. Usually during the coldest periods of the year the aerial part of these plants dries; it will begin to develop again the spring after.It prefers partially shady locations, where it can be reached by the solar rays only during the coolest hours of the day.

The Hosta tardiflora Needs regular watering, but we suggest letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; let's take action every 1-2 weeks , remembering to water the substratum well with 2-3 glasses of water . Generally during the period of vegetatational rest it isn't necessary to water our perennial plants, which in many cases lose their aerial part.
Pests Hosta tardiflora
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.
