Do you usually keep their flowers or cut them off?
I nick them off as soon as they start to bud. He he...

Do you also collect coleus or heuchera?
Well, it's the same, I don't let them flower.
Purely for the leaves :)

In Malaysia, I used to grow a lot of caladiums!
They were really showy and colourful.
You can create a new hybrid by combining two different cut bulbs - it's fun :)

@London Caller: I definitely keep the flowers, but cut off their stems once the blooms are spent. You can see some of the blossoms with the tag hosta.

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

I like the dramatic subject leaf and the profusion of irregular shapes around it

A beautiful hosta leaf. We have had at least 2 weeks without rain and it has been really hot. The plants are feeling it even though I get out there and water. My hostas in the the front yard are all withered. It makes me sad.
