What's the secret to growing a successful Brunnera? Mine has been getting smaller and smaller and is barely there this year.

Paul,

Is the 7th picture Risky Business? I had a beautiful one for several years and then it turned mostly solid green with a few eyes that had very narrow white streaks. It's a beautiful hosta when it behaves!

Rose......good eye, it is Risky Business. I had a few solid green leaves last year and more this year. It is planted among variegated Hostas so I may just leave it. I seem to remember that when I bought it about 3 years ago that several of the plants had green leaves. I think the Striptease family is a little unstable considering all of the intros.

Hi Paul,

Your hostas are as beautiful as your iris! Mine got hammered by some serious hail this week. What is the name of the hosta with the wavy edges (4th from the bottom)?

Hi Val......I got some hail also but it wasn't hard enough to do any damage. The Hosta is Mildred Seaver's 'Queen of the Seas'.

Excellent pics and varieties. You have a paradise in Utah. Nice Spilt Milk & QOTS. They're all great. I have Corydalis Lutea also. It is easy grower for me.

I remove any solid eyes from my Risky Business. I don't want it to revert. Usually just pull out at ground level.

An absolute delight to view your gardens. Would love to know more about the hostas in them. You have a knack for arranging them in a pleasing way. Would love to know if you have certain rules of thumb to display them. Thanks so much for sharing.

Thanks for the kind comments. I don't have any rules. I plant for immediate effect. Some areas are getting crowded and I will need to move some in the next year or two. I have some rocks among the Hostas but they make it difficult to rake the leaves in the fall. My planting areas are FULL and I'm not going to dig out any more lawn so I have put some in containers this spring. If you go back to last year in the threads there are more shots of my garden and also my friends garden........give them a look.
