RE: hosta platinagea (sp?) ----- (plantaginea)

Hi Judy,

I agree with John about the possibility of southern blight. I live in zone 7
near the Atlantic coast and my H. plantaginea(the only fragrant species), H.
Invincible, Ming Treasure and almost all hybrids with plantaginea heritage
are in full bloom. One exception to blooming now is my H. Aphrodite which is
the double bloom form of plantaginea. My Aphrodite has 8 bloom scapes which
I hope will open in the next week or so.

All fragrant hostas are related plantaginea.

Dan N.

Subject: hosta platinagea (sp?)

I bought a platinagea hosta this spring, planted it in a semi s-semi s
place.  it seems quite happy & has put out several new leaves!
However, at the same time, the bottom leaves are yellowing & rotting.
Explanation?  also, when should I expect (have expected) this hosta to
bloom?  that's what I was waiting for!!

TIA, Judy
