The Hostas are looking just wonderful in my garden. Different cultivars are at different stages of growth, some mature growth while others are just emerging. I'm obsessive about my plants and sharing pictures and may post to many pictures but hope someone enjoys them.........

Paul,

Your gardens are always so pretty! Looks like we're going to start warming up again, so mine should start unfurling. I have a lot up, but cool weather has slowed their progress!

Looking good, Paul. Is your 'Dancing Mouse' a fast grower for you? I was surprised to see it larger than 'Pixie Vamp'. I've never had any of the "mice" grow really well for me, but PV doesn't seem to know it's a mini.

Dancing Mouse doubled in size this year. Pixie Vamp is a little bigger. I bought a plant of The Razor's Edge edge yesterday and the label calls it a dwarf. Some references call it small, Mine is about 15 inches a cross and eight inches high.....surely not a dwarf. Here is a picture of TRE and also one of one of my Mouse Ears bed.

My 'The Razor's Edge' is definitely NOT a mini. It doubled in size the first year I had it - so much so that I was able to offer up a good big division to my hort. society spring auction.
