I was given some Hostas and would like to identify them. I was told that the one with the darker center with light green edge was a "So Sweet". It bloomed today, and when I looked on line, I only seen that variety with white flowers.

Hi & welcome! That's a nice big flower, for a Hosta. Lovely!

There's thousands of Hosta cultivars. I think one would need to check every one to decide for sure on a cultivar name. A diff color of flowers would definitely be cause for "them" to give a separate name.

Stefan - currently on vacation in a spot with limited and slow Internet. I'll have a good look after I return home on the 23rd.
