I was actually attending the National Daylily Convention this past weekend in the Minneapolis area. Two of the tour gardens actually had amazing collections of hosta. One of the gardens was on National tour a few years ago and I'm not sure about the other. One of the hostas was apparently mislabeled and I am not sure about the other, as the image doesn't seem to match another image in the hosta DB.
This cultivar was labeled as Twilight and it isn't. Any ideas?

As you can see, this image below is clearly labeled in the garden as 'Frozen Margarita' but the picture does NOT match the current images in the database. i do not want to add it if it is incorrect. Can anyone verify whether this is FM or not?

Thanks in advance for any help with these. There may be more as I sort through images!

I'm pretty sure the first one is 'Whirlwind' - or maybe the less common 'Midnight at the Oasis'.

Don't know what the second one is - looks a lot like my 'Janet', but there are several others that look similar. The margin is wrong for FM.

Thanks. I'll look these up for comparison.

I agree with the Whirlwind, I had two last year and that one looks like the one in the shade. The other looks like my Orange Marmalade. (I think) Whistling

Julie....as I said in another conversation #1 does look like 'Whirlwind'. Some of the leaves are starting to get the characteristic twist. #2 might be a young plant of 'Inniswood' or looks somewhat like a young plant of 'Rainforest Sunrise'. Google RS and compare those pictures. I have an immature plant of 'Orange Marmalade" but it hasn't developed that color yet.

I have both "Whirlwind' and "Midnight at the Oasis'..... could be either -- look at vein count and leaf size etc....

Bottom on I agree with others on all the suggestions so far asi have all three and they all look similar except for some subtletee's!!
I tip my hat to you.

This is the difficulty with trying to identify something you saw once in someone else's garden. So many plants start out one colour and change to another and sometimes the flower colour and time is important in IDing a plant. And finally, there is the age factor in that a young plant may only faintly resemble the mature version.

I find it helpful to bury the tag that came with the plant, or make a tag to bury when I plant it. That way if I lose the metal marker I have next to it, I know I can find out if it's that important to me...
