Isn't it a beauty? It looks like it might grow very big.
Thank you.

Not the right colour for Great Expectations.

Could be 'Frances Williams'. Do the leaves get spring desiccation burn?

If they don't show the burn maybe it's Olive Bailey Langdon (I don't have that or have a picture).

It also looked a bit like my Christmas Pageant.

Do you know when it blooms and what colour the flower is? Also, what zone are you in? That could help.

A hosta in zone 8 could look quite different from the same hosta in zone 5.

Thank you, everyone, for the response. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it is not Frances Williams. So far it has shown no sign of dessication even though I have moved it to a sunnier spot.
