Great list Bob, those are some terrific choices. I was able to get Spilt Milk from Contrary Mary's

I got Brother Stefan to replace one that died and to accompany one that is struggling. Is Brother Stefan fussy, or what?

I mentioned these on another thread, but I've added:

Orange Marmalade
Mouse Capades
Sun Mouse
Lakeside Paisley Print
Flemish Steel
Yellow Polka Dot Bikini
Stained Glass
Hawaiian Luau
Emerald Necklace

and I identified some NOIDs I'd had tiny shoots of last year so they're sort of new?

Lemon Lime
June
Albo Picta

my collection is still relatively small, just under 40 varieties, but man I love each one of them!

Mine have been struggling this spring, though. It wasn't a good start and there's some weird weather stuff on some foliage, like Clovelly, but others are flourishing, like Vivacious and Snake Eyes.

Some favourites on your list Jewel! Sun Mouse, Flemish Steel, Clovelly, Snake Eyes and Vivacious are all ones I have coveted. Mouse Capades looks a lot like Mini Skirt which I have; both are sports of Mighty Mouse I see. I have Happy Dayz which is a sport of Orange Marmalade; love it. Lakeside Paisley is beautiful but not growing for me; think I will try moving it this year. I had Yellow Polka Dot Bikini but lost it sadly. Hawaiian Luau looks very pretty; that's one I've not seen before and Stained Glass is another one I have that I love. Would love to see a pic of your Vivacious and Snake Eyes.
Hopefully conditions will improve so your other plants flourish. We've had some weird weather this year too, and I'm always battling with tree roots here. Thumbs down

So, turns out Delicious was sold to me as Vivacious. I got it late last season and for some odd reason hadn't actually looked at photos online of V. so only figured it out tonight while browsing photos on the American Hosta Society FB page. I really like the one I have, Delicious, all the same but I really should have known. lol D'Oh!

I will take photos tomorrow as they've done nicely since my last round of progress shots.

I think I've lost Trifecta, which Ann had warned me wasn't strong in constitution. With a lot of ice this winter instead of snow, I'm honestly surprised everything else came back. everything else is hanging in there but some that had an excellent 2018 season are struggling--Moon Split, Sting, and Whee! but they're recovering now we've had some 20+ days along with the rain.

Does it count as new if I'm replacing ones I've lost? If so, I've purchased Olive Bailey Langdon, Brother Stefan, Pure Heart, Ivory Coast and Guardian Angel.

My new purchases are Age of Gold, First Dance, Tall Twister, Lemon Kiss, Mango Salsa, Island Breeze and Substance Abuse.

Some of these were bought at nurseries in my area, but they're still new!

Delicious. It's so eye-catching in the yard! First full season in the ground so lots of filling in to do.



This is year 2 for Snake Eyes, which I got as an end-of-season bargain grab in 2017. It was bare roots and stumpy so it's doing quite nicely.

Sad Clovelly didn't enjoy the icy winter and crap spring Sad

Thumb of 2019-06-17/JLWilliams/b02cfb

And Trifecta made an appearance overnight! So there's hope.

Great list Rose; I've checked them all out. Smiling
Jewel, Delicious is lovely, love the bright green. Is it shiny? Definately got to get Snake Eyes though. nodding Passed it up not long ago and kicking myself now. Good luck with Clovelly, I'm sure it will recover and congrats on Trifecta emerging after all. Sometimes it seems that they like to tease you!

Rose it looks like you have a much better selection at local nurseries then around here.
I agree about Lemon Kiss, one to keep an eye out for.

I'll get a picture tomorrow and let you see how it's doing! I planted it a few weeks ago in my mini bed, and I haven't looked at it since! So we'll both see how it's doing!

Ooh, Lemon Kiss is really nice! Must be pretty new; it isn't even in the Hosta Library yet.
