It's that time of year when my hostas cower from me when they see me approach with my pruning shears.
Yes, they are flowering away.....doing their best to pollinate. And I thwart them at every turn. You might ask why a gardener would do such a thing? The whole point of gardening is....flowers, right?
I must say, I am not a fan of hosta flowers. Well, mostly. I think they detract from the plant and the height of them is bothersome to me. Why? Well, the plant is low-growing, so when it puts flowers on that tower above the plant, it throws off the scale of the plants around it. Usually, they're not that pretty of a flower anyway, so why have them?
These are the only hostas I have whose blooms I can slightly tolerate. I like the all white flowers against the soft green of this particular hosta.
I think the all-white is pretty and it doesn't get too tall.
So, lately, I have been filling some of my jars with hosta stalks.....
How do you feel about hosta blooms? Like them, hate them....indifferent? ; )
