I bought a hosta named Dream Queen and it looks like the leaves curl a bit. The photos in the database are varried, some look curled some do not. Looks like as it matures it looses that feature ?
Are there some hostas that curl and stay that way?

Take a look at Curly Fries. Is that curly enough?

our "dream queen" hostas are always the last to open up. ours are now only about 6-7 inches high yet. and yeah, they stay curled up for a while, like all hostas, but you're right, they seem to stay curled for a lot longer than most. they'll eventually open up. its still a little early. good luck!

Is riverman123 talking about the leaves unfurling and Frillylily talking about an actual curl in the leaf? Confused
I will have to go out and look at mine, I have not notice either.

Yes I am talking about the leaves actually having a curl to them, not the way they open in the spring.

I took a picture of mine a few minutes ago but did not notice any curl.
