Hosta tardiflora - Late to the PartyFriday, October 04, 2019
|Hosta tardiflora 4 October 2019|
Hostas are known as shade tolerant (no plant is shade loving) perennial that has a myriad of versions with variegated leaves.
Hosta tardiflora is a laid back, unvariegated species hosta that in October has nice, elgantly narrow and shiny green leaves and just happens to flower when most other hostas have long flowered in June/July/August. Many of those hostas in my garden have leaves that are getting fall colours and a fall wilt. Not so, tardiflora which may be late to the party but I would assert that it was worth waiting for.
The chances of finding this plant in any Vancouver nursery are exactly 0. Who would want an unvariegated, small hosta that flowers now?
