Hostas on a dark, wet morning

Elegans hostas coming into bloom

Elegans hostas coming tinto bloom

My old dependables: that’s what I would call them if I gave them names. They all came from just one plant, which I bought when I moved into this house some fifteen years ago. I did nothing to earn them. They seeded and planted themselves. Perhaps I would better call them my determined hostas. In addition to this spot, they also line a fence in another part of the yard and grace my front doorway. They’re not my only hostas, but they are the only ones to have self-seeded themselves. They simply amaze me.
