That doesn't tell me about spread, the photos were a little helpful but it doesn't mention location grown.

It is classified as a M hosta, thinking the spread would be around 18-24 " across, maybe slightly more. I use the hosta library because it normally has different photos so I can get several perspectives of the shape and color. Believe this hosta would need a few hours of morning sun to get its best color.

I ordered it in 2018 from Naylor creek, but don't really remember anything exciting about it. I'll post a picture in the spring if I can find it. My two pups have pulled up most of my tags, so identifying has now become a real challenge!

I had the same problem with tags last year, almost all gone. But it was the frost heaves that did it for me.

Is Lipstick Blonde a hardy one? I love the pics on the catalog from Brecks. I have never ordered from them but they also have White Feather. I am tempted.

Also what is a good one with the red stems. Raspberry Sundae?? I am a dl person mostly but I also grow several hosta. Thanks.

Beet Salad, ok thanks for the recommendation. I have found that it is best to check with other gardeners before big purchases.

Okay... here's Lipstick Blonde today. It's planted under a smoke tree that has finally filled in, so it's providing shade. It gets morning sun until between 10 and 11. It's not keeping the beautiful yellow colored leaves that it has in the early spring.

The ones that stay a bright yellow for me are the ones that start green bright in the Spring but get brighter yellow in the summer.

Zounds and Pineapple upside down.

I have no idea who this is it came in one of those no name Gilbert Wild ground cover pack of 20 for 20 bucks, a few yrs back. This is what it looks like in July. I really like it. It is always so fresh looking in the summer. I think it is Gold Standard but it was not marked so I cannot be sure.

I am not a plant name tag gardener but when I first started gardening I use to use flat rocks and paint pen and to write the name. Never lost a name tag.

I walked around today to see what was still a pretty yellow. I must have mine in too much shade because most of mine are turning a lime green. I noticed that my Pineapple Upside Down Cake looked pretty yellow today, too.

I don't know the name of this one. It's a beautiful yellow, but it gets a lot of sun. I'm sure it will be fried in another month.
