Hosta ‘Green Fountain’

5 08 2011

Although hostas aren’t known for their flowers, I think they are the most sculptural and elegant blooms, don’t you? We incorporate them into our gardens because of the wide variety of shades of green (and blue!), their easy-to-care for nature, and their longevity throughout the gardening season—but we sometimes miss their lovely blooms!

My next door neighbor is into hostas — so much so that most of his front yard is filled with them. I had no idea there were so many varieties! He’s well known in hosta circles; every summer, tour buses pull up in front of his house and people get out and wander around his yard.

In Pennsylvania, I always looked forward to August because of the spectacular hosta blooms .. but here in Atlanta, they don’t bloom so much.
Maybe the heat is just too much! Gorgeous photos, Cindy!
