Plantaginea with those huge white fragrant lily-size flowers; Fuji-Botan for double flowers are two of my favorites. Little Kabitan that I use for an edger has dark purple flowers.

There was a thread on this forum last week about flowers and pods, it's probably a page or two back now but it has beautiful photos.

What a great selection you picked! Lots of variety.

Good picks! I guess by now you know we don't grow hostas for their flowers. Some of the nicest are from Ventricosa,which are deep purple. All the Plantaginea,sports have fragrant flowers,and some of them are pure white. Phil
