Smooth hosta

hostahostaJuly 13, 2014

Paul did a thread on the rugose (which I really love) but how about some contrast. Do you have any hosta with smoooooth leaves?

Moon Lily. Looks like satin, can't even see the veins.

Swirls is ever so pretty a streaker...and smooth...and a few leaves displaying some piecrusting already! I recall reading in an older thread where Idiothe mentions it as one of his favourites - I can now understand why.

Here is one you don't see enough of...Kifukurin Otome - a sweet and demure little mini, very smooth leaf surface with a thin golden edge (kifukurin in Japanese).

Cherry Berry is definitely in the "smooth and satiny" category.

Fire and Ice I consider to be of smooth leaf...I have to search for veins in this photo...I had to include the Pardon My Pink Monarda because of the bee...look for the yellow dot at bottom of pic.

Bees are so single- minded, aren't they? In their ceaseless quest for nectar they are oblivious to us humans...we may as well be invisible! It was flying against my long skirt to get at the flower, lol! Amazing and endearing creatures.

Slick Willie. It's smooth as silk; impossible to avoid stroking when I pass by.

All nice pictures! A special kudos to mbug for that really beautiful Fire & Ice photo. You caught it just right when the sun was making those lavender flowers glow.

Hostahosta,

I've been meaning to post a picture... here's Grand Tiara, an oldie but one I really like.

Josephine, you're getting really good with those collages.

Enjoying everybody's posts too.

One picture...four hostas...all smooth, I think. Front to back: Illicit Affair (tiny division, dug up by squirrel early spring), Gemstone, Rainbow's End, Sugar and Spice.

I have McTavish to thank for introducing me to Sugar & Spice. I love it...nice and shiny and frilly...picture doesn't do it justice. Thanks Merle.

Country Mouse. Not a mouse ear hosta...a sport of Bill Dress' Blue, I believe.

Peppermint Ice - 4th year in this pic, cool colors but so slow. Growing in shade and get some melt out in center.

Irawon, thanks! Having fun and sometimes I just want to post one pic of several hostas -easy!

Love your Paradise Joyce and your Cracker Crumbs is quite large...hmmm either I practice patience, or put my divisions together for more impact! Nice pics!

Could not resist the smoothness of the leaf on Cathedral Windows' flower scape.

Josephine, Cracker Crumbs is at the base of the bird bath, gets copious watering from my hubby as he fills it for the birds and the birds as they splash about.

Tortifrons, finally putting on some muscle.
