Let us harken back to the early days of the 2013 growing season, long before the riotous appearance of purple and orange and pink and yellow and red that currently, i.e., early July, festoons the gardens at Buckingham Road. Presented here, one newly emerging hosta, a plant that has many, many varieties, all named after the Austrian botanist Nicolaus Host and described as “any of a genus (Hosta) of Asian perennial herbaceous plants of the lily family with densely growing basal leaves and tall racemes of white or violet flowers – called also funkia, plantain lily.” Funkia, I didn’t know that! What a wonderful name. Thank you, as always, Merriam-Webster’s.
