Hosta of the day - hosta 'plantaginea'

This week I have featured a hosta with large leaves, a hosta that covers a large area, and I will close the week with a hosta that has a very large bloom.  hosta 'plantaginea' has flowers that measure about 4" long.  Just the size of the flowers make this hosta a must have, but there is the extra bonus that these flowers are also highly fragrant.  The down side is that the flowers usually open late afternoon or at night, so during the day they will often look like the one in the picture below.  The plant itself has medium to large heart shaped leaves that are glossy and green.  The seeds it produces are very viable, and it is the parent plant of many other fragrant hostas.
