Native to northeast Asia, plantain lilies (hostas) bloom all summer and are extremely shade-tolerant. Propagated by means of stolons and rhizomes, the hosta plant is herbaceous in habit and grows well in USDA zones 3 - 9. Some hostas have variegated leaves, thus increasing the aesthetic value of a landscape. The flowers are found in white, lavender, and blue shades. Also, the plants are edible by humans.
This native East Asian flower usually comes in pink and white or red, and is sometimes also seen in yellow. It is an ornamental shrub and has many hybrid varieties.
The receptacle is an area where a flower binds itself to the stalk. After the fertilization process occurs, this receptacle often becomes part of the fruit produced by the flower. A common example of the fertilization product is the strawberry. Now the stalk of the flower is often known as a peduncle. The purpose of the peduncle is to provide support for the flower when it elevates itself to attract pollinators.
