'Invincible' has been in my garden since autumn 2005. It's a medium-large plant with lovely shiny leaves. It was registered by Paul Aden in 1986 but most of his registrations are now being questioned as many were fraudulent; so true origin is unknown. While this is a lovely green plant, the slugs love it too and by the time it blooms late in the season, the leaves are always lacework. Last autumn, I decided that my city garden was too small and the real estate too valuable to let this plant take up much space and I divided it and sold off the divisions with the proceeds going to my local hort. society. Please feel free to post your pictures of this hosta.

2016 update - Aug 5
I divided this one at the end of 2015 and sold off most of it, but one division stayed in the back of my veggie garden and, for the first time, it went through a whole season w/o becoming lace from the slugs. Still not really sure whether I'll keep it long-term though as there are several very good newer green hostas and I don't have space for all of them.
