Or, take a page from modern design and showcase a vase of hosta leaves—in one hue or a mixed variety. Hosta leaves hold up well in a vase, outlasting many garden flowers. This variety, ‘Loyalist,’ offers leaves with white centers and green edges. Many hostas also unfurl vase-worthy flower spikes at some point in the summer.
