Hosta, Kentlands Photowalk, Gaithersburg, Maryland


This hosta photograph was taken in our Kentlands home garden in Gaithersburg, Maryland 20878. To obtain a background like this, simply place a sheet of colored paper behind the flower. It is fun to try different colors.

If you enjoy photography, you may wish to explore Facebook groups that share your personal or professional interests. It is a quick way to develop a world wide social media audience.


Subhash Sharma This fresh looking Hosta flower also known as hostas, plantain lilies (particularly in Britain) and occasionally by the Japanese name giboshi. it’s a small Genus of about 85 members which was named by Austrian botanist Leopold Trattinnick in 1812,in honour of the Austrian botanist Nicholas Thomas Host. In 1817, the generic name Funkia was used by German botanist Kurt Sprengel in honour of Heinrich Funk, a collector of ferns and alpines; this was later used as a common name and can be found in some older literature.

Mr. Sharma left these comments when I posted this photograph on Facebook.  He is from India and lives in Ireland. He frequently comments on my flower photographs.
