Awesome set of Pics Sir


Thanks, …, As per Flora of North America, since this species is of ancient horticultural origin and does not occur in the wild, it has been reduced to cultivar status in horticultural nomenclature as Hosta ‘Lancifolia’ (W. G. Schmid 1991).


It is only a note. Both FNA, GRIN and other databases recognize H. lancifolia.
