'Gemini Moon' is registered as a medium-sized hosta, but I'd call mine medium-large. It's a sport from 'Abiqua Moonbeam' and has been in my garden since spring 2008 though I took some divisions from it in 2011.

I grow it next to 'Touch of Class' and I like the way the colours compliment each other. A Heuchera 'Tiramsu' on the other side also brings out the chartreuse margins. It also holds up well into the season. Please feel free to post your own pics of this hosta.

Reminds me of Luna Moth that I have on my want list. Do you grow that one? Any recommendation of one other the other?

I'm afraid I don't have 'Luna Moth'.

Will keep an eye on that section of it for sure as there were a couple of leaves like that.
