Hosta  is a genus of about 23–45 species of plants commonly known as hostas, plantain lilies and occasionally by the Japanese name giboshi. Hostas are widely cultivated as shade-tolerant foliage plants, native to northeast Asia. The name Hosta is in honor of the Austrian botanist Nicholas Thomas Host.

Hostas are herbaceous perennial plants, growing from rhizomes or stolons, with broad lanceolate or ovate leaves varying widely in size by species from 1–18 in [3–45 cm] long and 0.75–12 in [2–30 cm] broad. The smallest varieties are called miniatures.
