Loving the look at your hostas--thanks for posting!

I still think that 'Blue Ivory' could be a wider margined sport. It's really fantastic. You should post a pic of it at Hallson's and see what some of the experts there think. :)

Corydalis is very pretty and a nice texture contrast with the hosta but it seed like crazy. It has spread all over my yard. It is hard to keep up with.
