Do you have companion plants planted with your hosta? Which ones are your favorites?

I've got a lot of companion plants, 3 different carex, toad lilies, hardy begonia, columbine, astilbe, a few different coral bells, pulmonaria's, aruncus and dwarf aruncus, and quite a few others, hehehe. I am a plant "collector" LOL.

I can't say that any one or even a few are my favorites, as I love them all.

Most of my companions are other hostas, but also ferns, astilbe, tiarella, coral bells, a few pulmonaria. For some reason, the squirrels, or something, keep digging up and stealing the pulmonaria. I'm giving up on those.

I have coral bells, astible, ferns (great ones from dg trades) most companion plant's are other hosta. I have no toadllies yet (but if you want you can send me some).
I have decided that I must redo a couple beds just to keep my hosta. (BIG JOB)
