Hosta 'Shade Fanfare'
I have shade fanfare down on my list and I have this one w no name. the leaves are huge. Some of photos of shade fanfare look more puckered to me and the leaves seem smaller?

From the The Hostapedia
21" high, 53" wide, leaf size 8 7/8" long by 6 3/8" wide, 10-12 vein pair, leaf blade ovate shaped, slightly wavy, slightly corrugated, fast growing. 3/4 to 1" wide margin that changes from yellow to creamy white.

That is a very nice looking hosta!

To me it looks like one of the Sum and Substance sports.

Thank you Rj, I think it is not that. The leaves are almost round in dimensions, very wide. So the description you posted, doesn't sound like Shade Fanfare. I guess it could be, but I don't think so now.

It looks terribly lots like this one, I don't remember ordering that or anything, but it looks so much like it, it almost has to be that. I don't think Sum it Up has enough yellow edging to it, it doesn't look quite right to me. But this one is spot-on.
