I found a streaky sport of Paul's Glory last year at a local garden center. At the end of the summer, I was able to get four really good divisions from it and they spent the winter in pots. Three of them are growing very well so far this year.

Wow, those are nice! What a lucky find.

I agree with Ticker--would love to see photos as they grow.

I always look for sports anywhere they have hostas, but this one was so "WOW"-obvious that I'm surprised someone didn't pick it up before I did.

As far as I can tell, there are no other streaked sports of Paul's Glory's out there.

Very cool looking!! Cant wait to hear how it turns out. I have Paul's Glory (about 4 years old) and I love that hosta!
