A few months ago I posted and said the tag said it will grow 5 feet tall with a 3 ft spread, we all discussed it and so
I replanted it elsewhere in case it grows large, anyway here it is now, not really grown a lot but did bloom, thought the
flowers would be purple not white, but I like them.

You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because they have roses!

Hostas always take a few years to get to their full size. After that, they become monsters. Smiling Personally, I've found that I like the white flowers on various hostas. Most of them are a pure white and are larger than purple flowers. I think yours looks perfect where it's at. If the empty space is a bit too much for your taste, you could add some pretty annuals until the hosta grows to full size.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize that we can't eat money. Cree proverb
