The backbone of our garden is the hosta collection, I think over 300 varieties when we first moved them here. Hostas like shade, so the dappled shade along our old stone fencerow was the perfect place for them. They are virtually all named varieties, collected by the Head Gardener here 10-20 years ago. And this is the season when they look best, just as they are starting to bloom.
Some of the larger hostas down at the end of the row, and a closer look at two of the largest.
