'Frosted Dimples' isn't quite as powder blue as it will get, but is looking good.

'Ice Age Trail', still has just one eye, but it looks happy. I moved it last spring to a brighter location than where I first had it.

Here's my 'Liberty'. New to me a year ago, but it was also a good-sized division. You'll see 'Fire Island' in the background. Also 'Red October' to the left and an emerging 'Francee' to the right.

'Marilyn Monroe' showing her ruffly leaves and white backs. This one I've had for a few years, but moved to a brighter location a year ago. She rewarded me with a late season bloom last year.

The margins on 'Patriot' seem much wider this year than in the past.

A streaked division of 'Pewterware' that a friend gave me last year. I had just one eye last year. This year there are three though one is still very tiny. I'm pleased to see it has retained the streaking.

This is my own seedling of 'Last Dance'. 2009 vintage. It should be fun to watch.

I posted a pic of 'Restless Sea' above (from last year). It's doing really well this year. Love the wavy leaves and sawtooth edges.

'Revolution' is up to 4 eyes. It was a gift from a friend a few years ago after my original one died. It's got a bit of extra speckling because the grass had been recently mowed.

Ann, I was thinking the same thing about my patriot. The white margin is much larger than usual. at first I thought a sport, but all of the eyes are like that.

Cindy - that's interesting. I wonder why. Maybe it has something to do with weather, but your conditions in Georgia are quite different from ours in Ottawa.

Here is a pic of my Patriot this year and I agree --- the margins for mine are much wider too. I picked this up last year, so this is year 2 in my garden. See the one leaf is almost half white.

Christine - some of your margins are a lot wider than others. I'll have to have a good look at mine to see if it is all unfurled now.

Kim - nice LLG. I'm afraid mine developed HVX and I haven't replaced it.

Ann - I know -- it is interesting... I will wait till the hosta unfurls and take another snapshot. We'll see what the rest of it looks like.
