Abiqua Drinking Gourd Hostas Planted By Firepit - September 2021
Last week, I picked up these three Abiqua Drinking Gourd Hostas that I resisted in buying for a number of years due to not being knowledgable about the attributes of this big, beautiful hosta. I decided to stick them into the border bed near the firepit out back - right in between the bluestone chips gravel and the tiny Northern Red Oak tree that I planted last year. You can see the three hostas below and the Red Oak tree on the far left, the fence near the top and the firepit edging on the right.
I kept them off the fence a bit - thinking I will extend the Yew hedge around (at least part) of the firepit. Will check on these come Spring and hope they emerge from Winter after I tuck them in with a little bit of new mulch.
