I've never really paid any attention to the blooms on my hosta because I grow them for their foliage. However, this year, I've decided to check out the blooms on them do to this forum and info. My Honeybells has HUGE fragrant solid white blooms on them! They are gorgeous!!! How did I miss these?

RE: Honeybells Blooms (no pic, sorry)

I know what you mean. I only discovered last year that if you don't cut the flower off immediately (which was my method cuz I despised the flower) YOU GET SEEDS! This year I'm leaving the flower scapes until I find out which ones produce seeds. Then I'm gonna harvest them this fall and try my hand at growing them over the winter. Plus the fragrant ones, I cut off and put them in a vase on my kitchen table. Plantaginea, so sweet and honneybells is my combination and it makes the house smell wonderful.
