Hostas around the GCA Circle (mostly Hosta yingeri)




Except for the paler plant in the foreground of the bottom picture.

Hostas are stealing the show this week in the Asian Collections.   Hosta yingeri, named for Barry Yinger who curated the collection in the 80's, is a tall, late blooming hosta collected in Korea in 1985. It's planted various places in the collection, but these two groupings face each other across a grassy strip below the GCA Circle.

I love the shape of the inflorescences - quite distinctive from other hostesses.
