I am not very knowledgable on hosta so asking the question about flowers
Thumb of 2016-09-05/gardengus/1c8d30 Thumb of 2016-09-05/gardengus/54fd67

Is it a general rule that white flowering hosta bloom later in the season?
My white flowering ones are in bloom now and most all the others have finished.
just an observation Smiling

I think each variety is different as well as their location. My last ones into bloom this year are light purple.

I think it varies. I have some early bloomers that are white or near white, but in general, the fragrant ones bloom later in the season.

Many of the late blooming fragrant whites have plantigenea in their background. I think the fragrance is divine. Very attractive to hummingbirds too.

Incredible fragrance out of the platigenea, to me they smell like tuberose.
Keep Calm and Carry On
