My new ones this year are:
Blue Ivory - I ordered this one
Green Eyes - picked up at the Hosta Picnic last week
Kinbotan - door prize at the Hosta Society bus tour
Liberty Bell - I ordered this one but I think the wrong plant was sent
Little Jay - a trade with a friend
Mighty Mouse - a bonus plant
Peace - I ordered this one
Proud Sentry - a trade with a friend
Ripple Effect - a bonus plant
Silver Threads & GN #2 - a bonus plant (I already have one. Will be interesting to see if they are the same.
Summer Snow - I ordered this one
Tears of Joy - picked up at the a nursery involved with the hosta tour
Tiny Tears - picked up at the Hosta Picnic last week
Unnamed streaked - a gift for letting the OHS tour my garden
Vanilla Cream - I ordered this one as I have three sports of it.

I hadn't planned to get many new ones. Some old ones will have to go. Must say, I also received two other plants as bonus plants that would get way too large for my garden. I gave them to a friend with a larger garden.

Here's 'Blue Ivory'

This is what was called 'Liberty Bell'. It's supposed to be streaked. This one MIGHT be a sport of 'Liberty Bell' called 'Bell Ringer'. I'm having difficulty getting the nursery to respond to me.

I don't have a pic of 'Green Eyes' yet.
'Kinbotan" is really tiny.

I am so jealous; they are all so beautiful! I want to move so I can have a place with lots of trees and shade.

Great new plants Ann! Arlene, my house will be on the market in a few years when hubby finishes the PhD he's starting this fall Big Grin

We assume he will get a professorship in a different state as that is how those things tend to go. Just think about how gorgeous all 175+ of my hostas will look by then...I do plan on taking a few whole plants with me depending on where we move (if climate is compatible) and divisions from a few others but will probably leave most of them behind.

The only thing I can say is with a new blank slate, you will make an even more beautiful garden.

Well, it is five years away Rolling my eyes.

I've thought of that Arlene, I look at what I did from scratch in this yard and think "I can do even better!"

I love watching other people's make-overs in their own gardens, it gives me so many ideas!
