I may or may not have planted or transplanted from another place a hosta in this spot. My place is pretty messy and I'm not there a lot of the time, so I don't really keep tabs on what is planted where.
And what's the red stuff on top?

That doesn't look like any hosta I've ever seen. I have a plant called Lords and Ladies that does well with Hostas. It has a similar flower (berry?) stalk. Mine are in bloom right now and the leaves are all gone & it's just the flower stalk. I'm in the South East U.S.

I've wondered what that thing in my flower bed is for years!

Cool series of photos of what it looks like in different seasons.

I'm full of tinier men! And a tiny ad:
