FYI there is a contest going on on the front page. If you like Hosta as your fav you can vote for it by making a comment on the submission or giving a thumb for the submission.

I love the fact this is a really different plant depending on which ones you choose to include in your landscape.

Hope you all agree.

I also would like to see more activity on this forum. I have dedicated about half an acre to my hosta-filled shade garden. I have added companion plants, sitting areas, and pathways to make the area a garden retreat.

Marilyn, I'm not sure there's much danger because there are three hosta threads in the competition, so I presume the organisers will add them all together? Sorry, when I started my thread (Regal Splendor) I was thinking that a specific variety rather than a genus was required...

Thank you all for supporting this wonderful plant on the "contest" I can only hope this group of plants will continue to be supported. I have learned so much by the exchanges on both the forum and the contest threads.
