'Summer Breeze' was new to my garden in 2003. It's a medium-large hosta which is a sport from 'Summer Music' (but which looks nothing like its parent). "Last Dance', a sister sport, is similar in colour, a bit smaller but with smoother leaves. It has pale lavender, near white flowers in early July. This one is a real bright light in my garden. It did, however, get badly attacked by slugs late in August, though that is not always the case. Please feel free to post your pictures of this hosta.

Aug. 13 - setting seeds. This produces masses of fertile seed.

July 3 - sister sport, 'Last Dance'. The colour is similar. Size and texture and width of margin are not.
