Pic of the Day--Fragrant Bouquet

Postby Hank Zumach » Jun 29, 2007 8:12 am

Hi All--Today's variety, Fragrant Bouquet, has been gracing out garden since 1995. It has a good growth rate, attractive foliage and, yes, fragrant blossoms. It is the parent of Guacamole, which by itself would make this plant noteworthy. Growing in a spot that gets as much as 3 hours of mid-summer sun, it's size had stabilized in the area of 58x24. Zilis lists it at 48x22. Like most hosta varieties, it benefits from slug protection.

This is one of the fragrants I don't have. I have Fragrant Dream and Fragrant King that are about similar to FB.

Nice plants, with very good growth rate , just like most of the Fragrants.

Very nice! So is this actually fragrant?

Love your POTD's. Can we get more of the overall gardens some time also? Enjoy them last year :D

Jane~
It truly is!! Reminds me of the water lilies here on the lake...not as strong a fragrance, but memories of rowing a boat w/ my grandmother to the lily pads abound when I'd get a scent of these....

Another one I had to leave at home.... :(

I had sort of forgotten about this one. Thanks, Hank. :wink:

Beautiful plant! I moved mine this year because it was just languishing where it was . . . I'm waiting for mine to look like yours!!
