What do you think they are? I promise to tag them. I've had them for a long time, so they aren't a newer variety. Could one be Paul's Glory? The one in the lower picture is yellow and green.

Hi Diana -
Just some guesses here to get you going..... The top one does look like Paul's Glory but it may be a Gold Standard.....or Janet or Just So. Probably one of the first two.

Bottom could be Great Expectations or Brother Stephan or Captain Kirk or Dance With Me or Spinning Wheel or maybe Paradigm (if it gets sun).

Hope this may help!! Hurray!

Bottom is not Paradigm. Could be Great Expectations (not thick or waxy), Dream Queen or Thunderbolt (if dull, thick).

The top picture may remain a myster unless I pick a leaf and bring it to a nurser for comparison. It looks like it could be either one, Gold Standard or Paul's Glory. I have to figure I got these plants at Lowe's years ago when they had a limited variety of Hostas.

Dream Queen and Thunderbolt don't sound familiar to me at all, but Great Expectations does sound familiar and Lowe's would probably carry it.

Is Frances Williams a buckery one? I remember buying one of those. Could this be it? The leaves are very large. The brown stuff on the leaves are spent flowers dropped from the Serviceberry above it.

Here's another one. This Hosta grows very low, spreads out, and has small leaves. Three inches is probably the biggest leaf. some are very tiny. The plants are wider than they are tall. It's acting like a ground cover.

Frances Williams and Golden Tiara most likely.

I agree -- Look like a Frances Williams and a Golden Tiara.

Frances Williams is also known those "burn" spots, which is why many people with extensive hosta collections don't have/keep it.
