Another NOID

Posted by Dougald 4 (My Page) on

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?

RE: Another NOID

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

Fragrance is usually more noticeable in the evening.

RE: Another NOID

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.

RE: Another NOID

Moderately fragrant means Honeybells. Good ID ci_lantro.
