Questions about fragrant hosta

7 years ago

I'd like to get into fragrant hosta, but I don't find many of the fragrants appealing on looks alone. And, since I don't have a lot of planting space, I want to go for the stronger scented ones and avoid any which are only faintly fragrant. So, a few questions towards that goal!

(prefix all of these with "In your experience..." ;)

  1. What is/are the most fragrant hosta you have grown?
    2. Which ones have disappointed you?
    3. Is there such a thing as a small, very fragrant hosta?
    4. I have read that some fragrant hostas are fussy about flowering - any recommendations/cautions on that subject?
