It is beautiful. A lot of hosta flowers are scented too. The flowers on that one are soooo white. I'm partial to the large leaved big hostas. With the thousands of varieties I'd hate to hazard a guess as to what yours is, but I want one.

Hey Winston, I have one of those too. Bet we got it from the same place. The blooms are beautiful. The only problem at my place is that the bugs have gone after the leaves.

If you encourage toads and garter snakes to reside in your garden, they love to eat slugs. I'm surprised I haven't had much trouble with them this year considering how wet it's been.
