Nice one DD and way ahead of mine.
The only problem with Hostas is that they can be too happy and spread like wildfire!

There are no 'dingy corners' in your garden Angela! This is very exotic looking in flower isn't it..and white is so beautiful at dusk.

I love to see mine flowering. I was surprised to read last year that some gardeners cut out the flowers as they think they spoil the leaves.

HB, I don't know if I'm imagining it, but I think that once they have flowered, they soon go dormant. So to keep them going longer I sometimes remove the flowers. But the flowers are beautiful!

I can't say I've noticed that Karen. To be honest I can't remember what month I have to cut mine back.

No, and it might be a more Scottish thing too, with our cooler climate...I'm not sure. But I have always believed that I can keep my Hostas going for longer if I remove the flowers. But I can't bear to do it unless the flowers are very dull. This one....definitely not. They would stay on!
