Neutral coriaceous On Feb 4, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

"Hosta lancifolia" is a synonym for "Hosta 'lancifolia' ". See the Plantfiles entry for the latter for more information.

This is not a species, but an ancient Japanese garden hybrid.

I'm rather surprised to see that this is pretty much underused - Hosta lancifolia is one of the most common hosta for me - it multiply like crazy so I have a lot of them - they are easily Id by their lance shaped plain green leaves and they bloom late in the year even thought they comes up earlier than most other hostas.
