@jacaranda an update on the hosta that was flowering at soil level. Seems to have corrected itself 😊

This is a hosta? I thought it a calla lily at first. Please tag me if you think about it when @jacaranda has done info.

Kerry, does your Hosta look like this every year or is it growing in the same way every year? 🤔

No idea what Hosta this is but it’s growing flowers from the base. Is this normal? #hosta #plantain-lily

How interesting but I've no idea, it's my first year with them. I'm sure Barbara @jacaranda will know 🤔

How strange. I'm no big hosta enthusiast (mainly because of the multitude of slugs & snails here) but I've never seen one flower like that 🤔

20w
comment
jacaranda

That’s a first for me, Kerry 😳 I can only assume that the flower spike hasn’t properly developed and so the flower buds are opening as best they can. Time for some research, I think! Thanks for the tag, Jane 👍 @pelly

I’d say it’s about right Kerry cos there’s plenty of light at the bottom...when it gets bigger they push through the top

comment
jacaranda

No Elaine, Hostas produce a flower spike first and then the buds open at the top. Kerry’s Hosta is showing signs of very strange behaviour! @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

Kerry, I’ve sent a copy of your photo to a local Hosta nursery and asked for their comments. 🤞 that they’ll have the answer! 😍

I'm ringing them today Kerry, I'm pretty sure all the other ones I got are also wrong!! Anyway, as you say it is a nice one, have you had a close look at the leaves, they seem to shimmer!!

@sieveheadsarah I’ve emailed but as usual not heard back. I started tagging them when I post their wrongly labelled plants 😂 but still doesn’t provoke a response. Do let me know how you get on. I did notice, it’s a really unusual one ✨

I got 12 free ones with an order last year, not a one was labeled of course. I gave 3 away and all those three are coming up looking solid green! Most of the ones I kept have verigation. One looks as tho it's going to be a big one!
