This is what I ended up ordering.
Syneilesis aconitifolia- I know not a Hosta, but will go nicely with them.
Hosta 'Pistache' - Wanted another one, the one I got last year had very small roots so concerned about it overwintering and this one was way cheaper.
Hosta 'Korean Snow' Have been wanting but never ordered
Hosta 'Country Confessions' Looks like it should be a nice one.
Hosta 'Lakeside Paisley Print' Another I never got around to ordering.

There were quite a few that tempted me. It was very close with Skywriter, and another I think called Hot Shot.

$75.00 for the normal one. I think he has a giant sized one for $150.00.

I got Blue Phog from In the country gardens and gifts.

Aftershock sure looks like a nice one. Can not think of anyplace I could fit Big Bastard. Waiting to see if anyone has Blizzard this Spring for the place I left for a larger one.

I asked Jeff how big the Big Bastard was in his garden, he replied 40" high by 5' wide, think it could fit in to your landscape Bob!

Just think with those size leaves it might look out of place in my garden, plus the only Hostas that have done poorly for me are the very large ones. Empress Wu ,T-rex, Kokomo Dragon have all done very poorly and only lasted 2 seasons each.

Bob,

Well you're bursting my bubble! I do agree that Empress Wu and T. rex have been a huge disappointment in my gardens... Komodo Dragon has been in my garden for years, and looks pretty nice considering it's grown in sand. I got it from Foxfire (?) gardens in a coop on Dave's Gardens.

I'd offer you a piece of my Blizzard, but it only has one streaked eye left. Another one I can't really complain about, though. I got this one from a coop when Q & Z went out of business.

Largest in my garden is Sun and Subtance, I do have, a few Empress Wu and Komodo Dragon. I used to get some Hostas at Turkey Run now out of business, they had a World Cup that was 4 1:2-5' tall and at least 4' across, largest hosta I have even seen. Think it's all about the moisture.

Thanks Rose but I am sure I will run across it at some point. And hope BB dose well for you. Right now I guess I am in a phase of getting variegated and streaked ones , sure I will go back to the solids at some point. Rose In the country garden had Stag's Leap isn't that one you said you were looking for.

Bob,

Yes it was on my list. Unfortunately, I bounced my camera off the fireplace hearth, so that's my major purchase for a while. Merry Christmas to me😢. The lens that was on it wasn't damaged, so I guess it could have been worse.

I guess I'll keep it on my list for one more year.
