I'm looking for a suggestion again! Would like a shiny green Hosta, not too large. Irish Luck, Candy Dish and Devon Green all appeal to me. If you could only choose one, which would it be and why? Or is there another you would suggest? Thanks so much for your input.

I just got Irish Luck last year, so not really sure what it's like...

Here's a few that I have ...

Pitch Black (I'm not sure how big this one gets)


Puddles and Bumps


Lily Pad (just emerging) Not dark in color, but a vigorous grower.

There are several Lakeside hostas that have shiny dark green leaves. If they're available in your area you may want to check them out.

How aqbout Lakeside Black Satin? I have had mine for about 13 yrs now. Very attractive shape,color, and gloss to the leaves.

I've had that one for several years and it's never done well for me Grumbling I've seen some beautiful pictures of a mature plant so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that one day it will decide to behave in my garden! Like I said earlier, there are some really nice Lakeside hostas that fit that description.
