Can Hosta Thrive In Ground Covered With Small Crushed Rock

Question From: Morgantown, West Virginia, United States
Q: Providing Hosta plants are planted correctly, can you then layer the ground with small/crushed rock and still have the hostas thrive? Thank you.

A: That works, as long as the plants are not in too much sun. The stones will heat up and bake the plants. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
