Hostas are wonderful little greenies that pop up in shaded areas of the yard.
They can be big or small, solid or variegated, round or narrow. There are as many varieties as there are personalities. Many varieties will tolerate sunshine, though they might burn. They fill in holes with their leaves. They brighten dark shady areas.
And they die back in winter only to burst forth when the weather warms up.
To my knowledge, there aren't any pests or diseases that can decimate a hosta, though hailstorms will put some serious holes in their leaves!
Here are a few of my hostas. If I can remember their names, I'll post them.
These two are in a front bed that gets PM sunshine. By August, they are usually crispy critters, but until then, they look pretty along the brick walkway.

Even though I thought I would remember each and every name, I can't. But all you have to do is google Hostas and click images and you will find a HUGE variety of plants. If you have a shady area where nothing grows, then plant hostas.
What other plant is so low maintenance and easy going?
Though some varieties might need dividing after a few years. Just have a garden party and dig up the bulbs and give them away.
