This is a new sport that I brought in from the cold.
It is a miniature called hosta "William, Son of Mary."

I have been developing it for just three years, and I have divided it into three plants. I can not wait to see where he goes.

Same new sport, three weeks later.
This sport is still developing, and I really like that the irregular margins are widening and becoming whiter.

Pretty and a reminder that spring is out there somewhere! 4 more inches of the white, fluffy stuff this morning...I'm ready to see some green things in my yard!

Very pretty Gerry! Hopefully we will see some spring weather soon. We have another winter storm warning for tomorrow, might be getting some of the white stuff too. Rolling my eyes.

We've still got the white stuff 3 feet deep and showing no signs of melting.

I'm with you, Ann. My shade garden, about 1/4 of an acre, is under 3 feet of ice and snow.
