Fragrant Hosta Bloom

Hi everyone,
 
I'm still here!  I have been busy with some painting projects and working in the gardens.  As we approach late summer the hostas have been blooming.  I enjoy their fragrant funnel white flowers and picked a few to have indoors.

 
Many years ago I planted a row of 'Royal Standard' along the side of the house.  The large mounds are at least two feet high now.  It has only been over the past few years I have grown to appreciate the flowers.
 
Do you have a favorite hosta?  I think 'June' is very striking with its variegated leaves and soft lavender flowers.
 
Wishing you a wonderful week and I will be by to visit.

Hi Donna,
I love hostas and had some years ago,
but something kept eating them, turned out to be slugs, and I couldn't keep them off so finally gave up and dug them up and planted
something else. Never saw them bloom and what a beautiful bloom it is....
Very pretty.

May you have slugless hostas!! lol

Hope all is well with you. Oh yea, also liked the cute lil birdie in your other post, so sweet! I love wildlife too.

Blessings for a great week ahead,
Nellie

I have always loved hostas. We have some around a magnolia bush, the June kind. I already cut them down because they were looking dried up. Yours is very pretty! I didn't know there were white ones, but I am not that knowledgeable about gardening.

I love Hosta's, any and all of them.Your flower is very pretty. Some people cut the flowers stems off but I let mine bloom untill they die.

Yes, the June hosta is my favorite! The blooms are all spent there, so I enjoy looking at yours! Hope you're doing well.
