Hoping mine gets a little bigger, I may have to move it, it may be getting to much afternoon sun.

This hosta seedling has been coming up for the last 5+ years, never gets any bigger than these 2 leaves and always stays this color!

I'm in deep trouble, I ordered more hostas, one of them was Wrinkle in Time. Did I say no more Hosta?

Not getting more is a promise none of us keep. We just tell ourselves that to keep it a bit under control.

I just ordered blue mouse ears, I think they have better chance of growing now then ordering them later. I have a tiny area that I need something. This is free shipping, so it's not as bad.

If the first picture didn't convince you that you need Fickle Blue Genes, this one will!
