Daily Flower Candy: Hosta fortunei var. albopicta f. aurea

Reading time 1 minute

My next post on Sandling Park is proving to be quite epic in its scope, so whilst I work on it I’m staying closer to home and sharing the sunny delights of Hosta fortunei var. albopicta f. aurea, the golden fortune plantain lily. As hosta names go, both the latin and the common ones are a bit of a mouthful, but at this time of year the unfurling leaves need just one word of description – dazzling.

  1. I proudly admit I’ve never met a Hosta I didn’t think was beautiful and this one is no exception. I do wonder if there are support groups for people like me who definitely have too many. 🙂
