Hosta 'Floramora'

Tony Avent of Plant Delights Nursery in North Carolina registered this fast growing hybrid of "Avent Seedling PDN 04-147" x H. plantaginea in 2012. The medium size hosta grows to about 16 inches in height with a spread of around 30 inches. It has medium green, broadly ovate, moderately flat leaves which are slightly shiny on top. Near white, tubular, fragrant flowers bloom from August into September. It does not set seeds.

According to a Google search, Flora Mora was a distinguished pianist, teacher, author and Duo-Art piano roll artist who was born in New York City, November 24, 1894. However, I have no idea if this was the inspiration for this hosta name.
