I’ve never seen a hosta that I didn’t like. There are some daffodils I really think are ugly, even when grown to perfection for that cultivar. But I really have never known a hosta I did not think was lovely.
The Victorians were right, as they mostly were about gardening for visual impact in the landscape. They considered the coleus, called “painted nettle,” as one of the great basic plants of their major garden areas.
