Hosta of the Day 'Summer Music' - Post Your Pics

Postby ViolaAnn » Aug 19, 2011 7:55 am

Today's hosta - 'Summer Music'. Mine was new in 2005 but languished for a few years in a corner which was too dark. I moved it in 2008 and have seen better growth since, though it has not been a fast grower for me.

2014 is it's 10th year in my garden. It's doing well, but this one will never be particularly large. Picture July 16, 2014.
