If you look really close you'll see 'First Blush' has some pretty color in the veins!

Rose, is the first pic 'First Blush'?

Yes. Just a little hint of red (?) purple (?) in the veins, but the petioles are a nice red. I told you that you had to look closely, maybe even squint to see it!

Last year mine showed a lot of dark purple, heard it likes to have a lot of morning sun, waiting for mine to start. Thinking of moving mine to a sunnier location.

That's good to know about morning sun. Mine are still in pots until I find the right spot. Mine will definitely get morning sun because yours is very nice!

It has been a beautiful spring for my plants! So far, the temps have not been to cold to harm them at night, and gentle rains when needed! Couldn't ask for better conditions.
Managed to get some pictures today in between showers.

Very gorgeous hostas. Purple Haze is unique. I think they look great with bleeding hearts. How cool to have morels in the bed. I found one once but never again. Might buy some fake ones.
Maybe one without tag is Electrocution? Great pictures. Thanks.
This has been one of my best Springs ever. 2011 to 2014 I lost about 35, now beds are looking good.

Or tagless one could be Curly Fries.

I don't think either is 'Curly Fries'. They both have a thin green border... I think 'Curly Fries' is solid colored. I'll have to check my list to see if I can figure them out. They're both nice little hostas. I haven't been replacing the tags when they fall apart. Now I'm seeing that being lazy could be a problem! D'Oh!

Great shots, Hanky Panky is one of my favorites, really like the color combos. Moved mine to more morning sun, looking forward to it.

@ViolaAnn
I found a tag by the one that was named 'X-Ray'. I think you have that one don't you? Maybe you can compare pictures of yours and let me know. My 'Electrocution' is bigger than this one.
