In my front yard. This is always one of the latest perennials to emerge in my garden each year.

In past years, it's been a large plant with many flowers. It's been dwindling the past few years. It had been planted near the sidewalk, and was constantly getting its flowers picked by passersby. I moved it up the berm, away from the sidewalk, and closer to my soaker hose.

It's finally blooming. I hope it recovers. It's a great pollinator plant.

At first I thought this was a spider. On closer inspection I think it's a molt from the spdier still hidden in the web tunnel in the leaf.

Description

Stoloniferous, an unusual trait among Hosta. This has slowly spread from original planting to cover several square feet. That trait, plus the fact that the flowers do not open, lead me to believe this is var. stolonifera.
