Another NOID

dougald_gwAugust 28, 2012

I acquired this rather plain green (almost chartreuse) hosta 4 years ago as a tiny plant. It has grown quickly (2-3 hrs sun perday, daily watering with river water) to become a mature plant about 40 inches across and 18-20 inches tall. Leaves are 4 inches wide and 8-10 inches long ... scapes stand a full 4 feet high and began showing very pale lavender almost white flowers about a week ago.

Ideas as to this hosta's identity?

I 2nd Honey Bells. Leaf shape, color and floppiness rules out Royal Standard, IMO.

Fragrance is usually more noticeable in the evening.

Flowers are moderately fragrant ... with a delightful scent.

I counted 8 veins per leaf ... though an odd number seems more appropriate. The HostaLibrary shows Honeybells with 9 veins.

The picture otherwise matches and descriptions on other sites also match very well.

For now I will mark it as Honeybells! Thx for the very fast response.
