First June Fever. It has to be the slowest hosta ever or it needs something. I am going to move it this Fall. It has been in this spot for 4 yrs and it is just now putting up its second eye.

I divided some of my Hostas last fall and put them in pots because I am going to plant some on the hillside. Could not figure out which one was June and which one was Great Expectation.

I had to wait until June started to green up and GE stays yellow. I had never noticed how alike they look in the spring.

I love the bright colors in the spring after a dull winter! I hope your plants are protected from this crazy cold weather!

Thanks for sharing the pictures. I find it's always interesting how different some hostas look when they emerge from what their colour is later in the season. Someone could probably write a book on that.
