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.

Here are some of my smoothies :-)

RE: Smooth hosta

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.

RE: Smooth hosta

Beilstein's streaker from Devon...very smooth and sweet!

RE: Smooth hosta

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).

RE: Smooth hosta

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

RE: Smooth hosta

Almost forgot an obvious one...Rainbow's End...can't see any veins on this one...barely?


 o
RE: Smooth hosta

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.

Obsession is beautiful, now added to my list.

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

Here's my Wolverine yesterday. He seems pretty smooth.

RE: Smooth hosta

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.

RE: Smooth hosta

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.

RE: Smooth hosta

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

RE: Smooth hosta

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

RE: Smooth hosta

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.

Rock Island line in the middle with his smooth friends:

Appletini (top)
Gosan Leather Strap #2 (right) really fast grower
Coconut Custard (bottom)
Pixie Vamp (left)
Cameo (left of Appletini)
Bitsy Gold (spider-like)

Well it's stopped raining, going outside now to dig some holes, so i can get some of the hostas in this thread. Thanks guys for the enabling.

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.
