Hosta plantaginea 'Aphrodite' - August Lily
|Hosta 'Aphrodite' by Jan Johnsen|
I took this photo at The Mount in Lenox, Massachusetts. It is the lovely 'Aphrodite' hosta (Hosta plantaginea 'Aphrodite).
It has pure white, intensely fragrant flowers that open in late summer on 2 ft stems. It is so gracious along a sheltered path as shown here. Great for a fragrance garden.
Hosta plantaginea likes a moist location but can tolerate dry shade. Long lived. Moon garden, anyone?
