Don’t you get excited each spring when the first furled Hosta leaves start poking through the soil? I know I do because what’s not to love about these beautiful shade loving foliage plants. Yes I realize they have blooms and some of them are actually worth the attention. But my favorite part has to be the leaves whether they be large, small, green, yellow, blue or patterned. Now the blooms on my Royal Standard are a big plus since they are quite large and very fragrant. But for the most part I’m not that impressed with the blooms on some of my Hostas. This unknown Limey green one has pretty white flowers with just a hint of lavender around the edges, no scent that I noticed though. The stems are quite sturdy which keeps them upright vs laying on the ground to be run over by a runaway lawnmower. ;) I don’t remember if ‘Red October’ bloomed last year which was the first season in the garden, but the stems are pretty cool huh? Some of the Hostas in my garden were purchased as a grab bag type deal at the end of a season so I don’t know the names and some were long forgotten. That’s one of the perks of blogging, it has helped me keep track of new additions and their ids. Plus for the past 2 years I have been documenting new purchases in a journal which includes where they were planted. Anyhow just thought I would pay a small tribute to one of my favorite perennials in the garden.
