I've asked this question in the question section but didn't get any responses. Do any of you Hosta enthusiasts know the names of the following Hostas?

In each case, I've shown the plant and then a close up of the leaves. I've been told in the past that the first plant is Siebodiana and the second is Undulata Mediovariegata but my local plant group tells me that is wrong - they don't know what they are but some are sure that is not their names. Can you help??

The last two are of Hosta 'Undulata' although you'll find people calling it mediovariegata and a variety of similar names (nursery names). The proper name is JUST 'Undulata' and when/if the white part in the centre gets a lot more narrow (less than 1/3 of the leaf) then you call it 'Undulata Univittata'.

Solid green ones are a bit more tricky. It looks a bit large and a bit too pointy for 'Teaspoon'. Have you met Dawn at Gardens Plus right there in Peterborough? She knows a lot about hostas and might be able to help you with ID.
