Wow, never heard of Zebra Stripes, Does it always look chewed up? Hummmm, interesting.
I was dissapointed in the Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, it was only yellow for a few weeks and then just plain green. Sad I think I like the 'Hanky Panky' better.

Zebra Stripes had a rough beginning to the year... LOL!! The dogs decided to tree a coon right next to this little guy, so he was pretty bad earlier. His leaves are thin and I need to start spraying/pelleting for slugs.

Oh that is disappointing to hear about Yellow Polka Dot Bikini...I love my Hanky Panky! Maybe I will just stick with him.

I really think that is a good idea, all the pictures you see of YPDB it is yellow. But most of the year it is ugly green. Nice spring show that is all.
Love your Valley's Glacier, nice blue color and when I see yours it reminds me of another nice hosta I have.
I am looking forward to Hanky Panky!!
Green Grin!
I see now, the colors are reversed in this
Touch of Class, that is why it reminds me
of this hosta, wouldn't these look good
planted together? Green Grin!

I'm not sure what is unusual exactly, I guess? I need to take some pics of mine. But of the ones I grow, I feel Praying hands, Bridegroom, Crested Surf, Cutting Edge, Dragon Tails, Hacksaw, Neptune, One Man's Treasure, Pineapple Upsidedown Cake, Restless Sea, Stiletto and Twist of Lime may qualify? I'm usually attracted to anything unusual.

Will try to take some pics this weekend.

Oh I love Sharp Dressed Man!! I have the other 2 Emerald Ruff Cut and Robert Frost... Dont have Golden Meadows but have a couple that look like it -- neither are good growers.

How does your Sharp Dressed Man do?

Sharp Dressed Man is doing well, it is not slug or sun resistant and so I keep it in a pot and got it in shade. I might get brave and plant it soon, after I get slugs under control. If there is such a thing. Whistling
The Golden Meadows emerges as a beige leaf with light green and medium green and blue mingled around the edges, it's spectacular. But by end of april it is more plain but still a beautiful ruffled Hosta. Thumb of 2012-06-08/virginiarose/999e7c
