    If I were forced to choose 5 favorite Hostas, I know Liberty would be one of those. It is a beautiful Hosta. Very photogenic as you can see from the pictures in the database. It is attractive as a young plant and absolutely spectacular when mature. Moderate growth rate. It is one of the first to emerge in the spring in my garden. If you grow Hostas and don't have it, I would highly recommend it.
