I've never traded long distance but rather with a local group. I'll see if any of the mostly white ones go to seed before my helpful husband deadheads (I've been ill with my heart and haven't been able to do much of any gardening this year so far). As well as this unknown, I have

Holy Mouse Ears (mini)




Stained Glass

Paul's Glory

Stained Glass is the one in the planter\
Paul's Glory is the bottom one
The middle one was in error - not white.

Sorry for the late reply, they look lovely. I hope you are doing better. Don't worry about the seeds just focus on your health. Maybe we can trade some seeds sometime in the future if you start feeling better.

Ooh, I'm happy to see your ID Janet. These hostas were in the yard when I bought my house 30+ years ago and I always wondered what they were. Thank you!

It certainly looks to be that Jeanie, and with being so long ago it's even more likely. Thumbs up
