Botanical Sketch #40 - Hosta

Only 7 more sketches left!  Today's Botanical Sketch is the Hosta.
Hosta's are a beautiful shade plant whose leaves can grow to rainforest size proportions.  The leaves are quite spectacular, large and lush, green or variegated. At the end of the season the plants produce delicate flowers, purple or blue.  Hostas are gorgeous landscape plants and are also loved by deer as well. Apparently, they are quite tasty.  The good news is that they grow back the following year!
