Flora Found: Backyard Garden

Hosta: Backyard Garden

A garden favourite, the hosta is a large shade loving garden fixture. Low growing, with large ever expanding clusters of leafy greens, from hunter to lime and variegated stripes. The small plumes of flowers emerge in late summer and are often overlooked.

Small waxy looking, bell shaped flowers are a tasty looking purple. A profusion of stamens jump out to distribute pollen to any eager bee. Our Double Mustard Bear is featured here.
