Favorite Tiara!

Amber Tiara Hosta....one of my favorites!  



This is a favorite hosta partly because of it's unusual leaf color  but also because I do enjoy the flower it produces!


I really love the variegated tone of the 
flower and the lavender purple color 
of them! It's a relatively fast grower 
and I've split it off and doubled what 
I originally had in a short period.  
Overall it's about a 12" tall plant.
 Forgive my indulgence on this hosta, 
but I do enjoy it!  My hostas don't get 
chewed on too badly, but I am told by 
a reputable source that SLUGGO
by Monterey Lawn & Garden 
works the best!
 Now on with more lilies!
 This is a new one I picked up last year 
 called "Sunday Gloves"
This one is called 
Siloam Sue Mills
It's a large flower and shows
off nicely at a distance.
This little cutie is called
Razzamatazz
This one was new last year
too and it's called 
Crimson Pirate 
I'm going to be removing all my daylilies 
from this location and trying a little 
something different.  They are struggling 
along because they don't get enough sun
here. I end up with more green
plant than flowers because of it.
As soon as these are done flowering
I will be moving them.
I'm going to stick with hostas on the hill
and I'm going to be calling it
"Hosta Hill" from now on!
I picked up 6 new Hostas today
called Fujibotan.  They have a nice
deep green leaf color which should
make a nice backdrop to the
Japanese Forest Grass, Hakone
that lies in front along the edge of
the stone wall.

I hope your flowers are all coming along 
nicely and that this awful heat spell
that has his most of us hasn't ruined
your gardens!

  1. Liz, your new hosta is gorgeous! It is always nice to have a variety.
    You are right, the color is lovely. Day lilies are also a beautiful addition to any garden. It's easy to get carried away at the nursery.

  2. Oh Liz, your gardens and your home are just so pretty. I am in garden envy. We came home to tall grass and ugly flowers all dried up...I even had a friend water for me.

  9. What beautiful Hostas you have! The daylilies definately do better in the sun! I have most of mine in sun, but some are not and they do not do as well. I think you will be happy with the outcome of moving them! Beautiful patio sitting area! Happy Gardening!
