Description

Details

As the only species hosta that has fragrance, it is the mother of all fragrant hostas! Has also been called 'August Lily' or 'Fragrant Plaintainlily.' Has beautiful, light green, shiny leaves and 4" long, white, trumpet-shaped, fragrant flowers. H. plantagenia opens its flowers in the early evening, so moths or crickets, rather than bees, aid in pollination. Can handle heat if watered. The largest flower of the genus hosta. Native to China, it was one of the first hostas brought to Europe about 300 years ago.
