Re: Hosta Flowers

I have to get in my two cents.  I have a hosta collection and when there are
too many in bloom it looks too busy.  Too many hostas in bloom together
detract from the leaves.  So I cut off  most of the flowers not all.  I never
cut off the flowers of my plantagea.  I happen to like hosta flowers
particularly in arrangements.  But I own hostas for their leaves which I love.
Now I have to admit that when I have too many day lilies in bloom at the same
time I do not feel that same way.  I want to call people in to see the
display.  I don't care one way or another about the leaves of a day lily.
There are OK - have some interest.  I wait with antisiption for the blooms.
