Stars of Hostaville

I think I might just nominate these for the coolest hosta flowers. Although it is hard to tell from the photo, they are actually quite large and they look a bit like stars.

Some other stars to be nominated:

Best Colour: Sundown Echinaea
Biggest growth: Raspberry (no shocker here)
Best comeback from near death: Serviceberry
Most popular with the bees: Catmint
Most Popular with the slugs: Lupine
Nicest leaves: Coleus
Most flowers on one plant: Mallow (zebra and pink)
Most aggressively invasive: Strawberry (we are up to 4-6 flowers now)
Most entertaining leaves: Nasturtium
Best Flowers in the Shade: Jacob's Ladder
Bushiest Plant: Lemon Balm
Most plants planted: Echinacea
Least Growth: Bunchberry
Most Eaten: Lupine
Biggest Surprise: Blood-Spattered Lily

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming...
