This is a mature hosta that I've had for a decade. It is about 8 feet north of a large oak tree and at the east side of my yard - gets a bit of morning sun. It never becomes as light in the leaf centre as some people experience with this one but it is a lovely hosta. Please feel free to post your own pictures of this hosta.

May 16 - very little variegation visible when it emerges

I missed most of the bloom when I was away in July, but the plant held up well throughout the season.

Paul's Glory is a plant I drooled over , when I first became interested in Hostas. It was expensive when I finally decided I needed to have it. The place where I bought it had a mature specimen that was fabulous. It is still a favorite. Striptease is another favorite that I had to pay a price for. Both are in my must have category!

Paul's Glory was to drool over in my garden last year, it had beautiful variegation and garnered compliments.
Sorry for the double post, unsure how it happened.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

I must agree; Paul's Glory is a great Hosta. I have to make a special effort this summer to take some good Hosta pictures. I have some but not worthy of posting; a photographer I am not. Thumbs down

Debbie - take LOTS of photos. And put in the time to organize and crop them. I've found them very valuable and some of them are bound to be good photos.
