This group of Hosta (center) have gone crazy this year. They're such a bright green. Anyone know their name? I know the one on the far left is Patriot.

The one on the far left is more likely Francee. doesn't look like Patriot. Check the pics and sizes in the Hosta Plant Files database to be sure.

I agree with CJ -- looks like my Francee! Also the golden/yellows look like August Moon.

Here's a pic of my Francee:

Thanks for the August Moon ID. That name sounds familiar.

Here's a closer picture of the so-called Patriot. It does look more like the picture of Francee. It is really irritating when a Hosta nursery can't ID their own plants. I bought a huge clump of this a couple years ago and split it with my DD. The clump was labeled Patriot. Oh well, the same thing happens with daylilies sometimes.

Unless you tell me otherwise, I will change the marker to Francee.

Looks like a Francee to me too.
