This is likely older as they came from a retired gardener as a housewarming gift:

I'm pretty sure the bottom one is elegans, but the little guy above it still baffles me. Anyone? I noticed I didn't get any replies this time. Did I do something wrong?

My first thought on that first hosta is that it might be 'Dragon Tails,' which is one of the easier to find minis. Google and have a look at some photos and see what you think.

Hi Autumn -- I was thinking "'Chartreuse Wiggles" cause that's been arounf for quite some time.... then if it is a newer plant maybe "Dragon Tails" or "Friends" or "Pineapple Juice".

If you can count vein pairs and measure the leaf that may help narrow it down too. Smiling

The top one looks like it could be either Lemon Lime or Feather Boa. Check out the Hosta Library on the above names and see if any of the pictures look like yours. :)
