Ave Maria

I grow several Hostas, mainly in containers to better protect against snails, but also  some in a border. I like hostas for their bold leaves although their flowers are certainly a bonus. 

They are all beginning to look somewhat stressed this year because of the prolonged hot, dry conditions however much I try to keep them watered.

One Hosta in particular is noted for its fragrant, white flowers. This is Hosta plantaginea. This Hosta typically flowers in August and for this reason is sometimes also known as the Assumption Lily.

  1. I always think I don't like hostas, but then I see other people's, like these, and ponder that in fact they are lovely and probably worth the effort. The top photo is very striking!
