Now to one of the hostas I've had the longest. An oldie, but goodie. 'Francee' is a lovely hosta. I've found through trial and error that it likes some sun and I divided mine a few years ago when I decided that it would look better in a different location. Now I have two divisions. The one in the back yard generally appears to be a darker green.

Division 1 - July 25

Francee has to be a great hosta to perform well from Canada to Alabama, one of my favorites because it does so well, I have several divisions of it already after only having it for three years.
