Hosta sieboldiana


Hosta plantaginea?
Hosta for sure
Wait for more comments from experts


Perhaps you may be right. Perhaps these fact to help further
H. plantaginea flowers in August-October (hence known as August lily), whereas H. sieboldiana flowers in May-June
H. plantaginea is highly fragrant, whereas other species are not so
H. sieboldiana has leaves with glossy waxy coating that gives bluish tinge , not in H. plantaginea
H. plantaginea flowers open in the evening and close by the morning,
others open during the day.
Perhaps other members can give more differences.


Hosta is a popular bedding plant in thewe NE states, since it come back year after year every spring and tolerate and even thrives under heavy blanket of snow, ice and icy rain…
