Many gardeners forego planting hostas because of their attraction for slugs, but there are some tougher varieties such as 'Liberty' that are unappealing to the slimy critters and grow to be show-stopping mounds of cream and green from spring up until freeze. 'Liberty' has thick, broad leaves with dramatic yellow to cream borders that contrast beautifully with the blue-green centers. Lavender flower stalks appear in the summer, bringing out the hummingbirds. This perennial is a bit slower growing than some of its cousins, but will eventually reach up to two feet tall and three feet wide at maturity. Consider using 'Liberty' in container planters or hanging baskets for the first season or two, then transfer to the shade garden as it outgrows the containers.
