This is one of my favourites and it's the 2016 "Hosta of the Year". It's registered as a mini, but mine didn't get the message. It's lutescent, getting more yellow as the season progresses. Mine was grown in full sun in 2015 due to the loss of a tree and it thrived. Please feel free to post your own pictures of this hosta.

This is one that I just can't get excited about. I have a few in different locations. The one that gets a lot of sun was almost bleached white in the late summer. I don't remember it burning, but lost a lot of its color. I put Dragon Tails higher on my list of favorite small yellows.

My 'Curly Fries' is a LOT larger than my 'Dragon Tails' and the entire shape of the mound is different. I enjoy them both, but I don't think they can really be compared. Since we are in similar zones, I wonder why yours don't excite you. It IS supposed to turn whiter/more yellow during the season, of course. I have mine where I can easily see it every time I park on my driveway in summer and I've really enjoyed seeing it there.

May be because I thought it stayed a brighter yellow... It also gets a lot bigger than I thought it was supposed to. I'll pay closer attention to it this year and see if it grabs my attention.
