The last of the hosta is blooming. Odd as it may sound, the first hosta up in the spring is last to flower. This crop of hosta (if you have a better term, please tell me) is not some exotic cultivare. This hosta comes from the mother-in-law, Shirley, in Elmhurst, Illinois and a friend who hates hosta. It is a medium leaf green with a lavander flower. The bees swarm over the flowers from dawn to dusk. They are so interested in the flowers that they're not even bothered when I'm taking pictures.
