Louisa - a sieboldii hybrid. This is a late scape. The plant flowered earlier but lost some scapes to rabbits.

Marilyn Monroe - longipes 'Urajiro Hachijo' hybrid. I showed this when it started flowering but I found this 5 flower cluster on the scape.

Thanks for all these, Ed. Can you tell how fragrant 'Grape Fizz' might be (if you had several blooms)? It caused quite a stir at our auction this spring, when I described it as the darkest purple fragrant hosta (which seems fair, based on your pic).

Sorry, I didn't think to try to see how fragrant it is. I'll check if I get another open flower.

Here's a side view of the huge flower:

I was just out looking for new scapes and not much is left. Lemon Lime has a few really late ones; tardiflora has a large batch coming and couple have branched scapes; Corkscrew has one - I usually forget this plant because it's buried in azalea foliage; and one on a small seedling of unknown parentage.

My biggest Red October isn't pushing the scapes above the foliage so it's a disappointing "show". Miss Ruby's scapes are more lateral than usual.

I forgot about Wily Willy and Tatsumaki - they both have scapes just starting up. My One Man's Treasure doesn't have any scapes. It has flowered the last two seasons and this year it is bigger than ever. Hmmm, the Red October right next to it is not flowering either while all my other RO have flowers. But these two are in the most shade. There is a Candy Dish in that space also and it flowered nicely - 3 scapes.

Re: Mid-September Flowers - Fall Dazzler

Postby redcrx » Sep 19, 2013 11:08 am

Only found one new one starting to flower today with a "pinwheel" shaped flower - Fall Dazzler. This one just came in a couple of weeks ago. Luckily the scapes weren't damaged.

The MyHostas database says it's a 'Urajiro Izu Iwa' seedling but also says "Wild collected form of H. longipes".

Thanks for the late flower show, Ed. I have a lot of late bloomers in my garden, lots of seedlings from them too.
Might have to think about getting Grape Fizz one of these years. Solberg strikes again. :D
