Even though they originated in Japan, Hostas are a mainstay of the English cottage garden. They are also attractive to bees of all kinds.
Honey bees can’t fit inside a Hosta bloom, so they poke a hole in the flower to suck out the nectar. They have adapted to this exotic.
I love Hostas, and have many varieties. My favorites are the giants!
