    It is called Celosia or Cock’s Comb. It is an annual.

    Yes, they are annuals. If the tree doesn't have white leaves now (can't tell from photo - only see green), it's not likely to have them later. If it does or doesn't won't matter if you plant Hostas. The Hosta comes in various forms of variegation, including white and cream. It also tolerates sun, and lots of shade well. It is, in fact, a shade loving plant. Find a place that sells small plants for a decent price. All perennials are more expensive than annuals. You will be surprised at how well they fill in. It will take a few years, but will be worth it. Use pine straw for mulch and they will love it.

      I buy mostly perennials, just a few annuals. Perennials don't have to be replaced every year. It's a money saver in the long run and a labor saver too.

    Hostas' enjoy more shade than sun; they do not tolerate full sun at all! I don't know about Cock's Comb, but, a lot of annual plants will seed or come back from roots or ribosomes if you live in a warmer climate. Hostas' are beautiful and come in various shades of greens with creams and whites,

    Look up plants you might like on the internet before you buy (spend your money), and see if your yard has the correct light or shade for them, don't waste your money first.

    Some annuals will comeback if in warmer areas I have seen many "annuals" return here in east Texas

    The orange colored flowers are annuals. Leave then there until they are almost gone completely, and they will drop hundreds of seed for the next season. Let them get about 2 inches tall in the spring, and thin out or transplant to other areas. They love the sun. I forget what they are called..
