'Sparkler' is one of my newer hostas and I still have it in a pot though I hope to find a garden location this season. I acquired it in 2012. It is a sport from 'Fireworks' which has slender leaves with very narrow, creamy white to white centres and dark green margins that jet into the centre. Heavy substance. It did not bloom for me in 2015. Please feel free to share your pictures of this hosta.

Really like that one! Great that it has more substance to the leaves too; less chance as slug bait.
Ann, I would like to thank-you immensely for posting pics of all your wonderful hostas with personal critiques. I eagerly check each day to see what you have on display and to hear your advice, etc. This is obviously a lot of work and it really shows your dedication to hostadom and your fellow gardeners here.
I tip my hat to you. Thank You! Thumbs up

Thanks. I'm afraid I missed a couple of days. But I am on the home stretch. About 10 more days should do it. The I will prepare an index to the "dailies" and see if I can talk Dave into making it a stickie at the top of the forum.
