Hi--My plantaginea background plants are all holding up as well as any I have.  We 4 or 5 with that background (Aprhrodite, Venus, Guacamole, Royal Standard come to mind) and  they are spread around in various micro climates.

Subject: hostas from plantaginea looking good

Hi!  For the past 2 years I've noticed that those hostas with plantaginea in their lineage usually look better in the fall than most others here in MN.  Dan mentioned the 1st frost, which makes me wonder if most of my other hostas look bad before frost but the plantaginea hostas look good up until frost??  I'll have to pay attention NEXT year!  Cindy Johnson

Aphrodite, Fragrant Bouquet, Gauc, FGT and FB are all ranging from just mild coloring on some leaves, to no signs of impending dormancy at all. They are also spaced in various places throughout my yard. -Alttara

Those in the open are quickly fading and it's hard to tell one cultivar from the other. It seem to me that hostas with the species H. 'plantaginea' in their heritage are the first to look bad with the first frost. Dan Nelson
