Hi everyone, I recently moved into a rental and am starting to fix up the landscaping. The front of the home is munched, and I noticed these green growths and sprouts. At first I thought they were Hosta but the stem seems a bit too long. I've asked around and was told either Hosta or a weed. There are many sprouts within the area.

Thank you very much! I'm really hoping they are Hosta. I don't have much of a green thumb and the area seems pretty full with them.

Don't think it's hostas, maybe Solomon's Seal

Agree with some kind of Polygonatum species, usually considered desirable, and less pedestrian than Hosta. Definitely not Hosta.

What a nice plant that is, I've never seen it before and its deer resilient that makes it even better than a hosta.

I agree with Tiffany that it is a Polygonatum, definitely not hosta. I have a field of them and enjoy the lily-of-the-valley look of them.

Variegated Solomon's Seal (Polygonatum x hybridum 'Striatum')

For comparison, here's what a hosta looks like as it emerges in spring:


They are very easy to lift and move to another spot.
