I wonder if anyone can help me ID this fairly common plant. It looks a little like a hosta in the fact that its about the same height and that it seems to like shade and spreads in a similar fashion.
It has kind of scalloped deep green leaves that are fairly chunky and nice and shiny. It shoots up stems of little pink flowers that are slightly like a large hyacinth.
I do have a pic, but am currently unable to upload. I wonder if anyone can solve my clues...?
Sounds exactly like the hosta you seem to think it isn't - why do you not think it is a hosta? Do have another go with a picture if you can, does help a great deal.
Nut's suggestion - bergenia
Yes! Thats the one! Thanks loads, you are super!
I knew someone would get it in a flash.
thanks again x
Certainly sounds like a Bergenia - especially if it is flowering now. Too early for Hostas I'd imagine
aha, I did not realise it was flowering now - a bergenia indeed - much prefer hostas personally!
quite right too Bookertoo. tee hee.
Bergenia , never a hosta from your photo
Steve, I posted the pic from the internet to help the original poster decide if that was the correct plant
