I've noticed the majority of my hostas are turning out to be lime/yellow colored. Can y'all recommend some nice deep, dark blues and greens? Thanks for your help.
Thanks, Freda (Blossom)

Solid Blues -- Love Pat, Blue Angel, Blue Mamoth, Blue Hawaii, Blue Mouse ears, SilverBay, Halcyon, Hadspen Blue.....Krossa Regal (Blueish green)
Solid Greens -- Abiqua Drinking Gourd, Empress Wu

Blue w/green edge - Deja Blue, Tokudama Flavocircinalis, Silk Komono is pretty but more of a Whilte edge...

Another green with Blue edge that I like is Touch of Class

Hope that helps with some ideas.. :)

Check out the Lakeside hostas for some really dark green ones. Some that come to mind are Lakeside Black Satin, Lakeside Coal Miner and Lakeside Ripples. I'm sure there are more, but can't think of any right now. Have you visited the Hosta Library website yet?
