I rescued these from my Dad's last summer when he was building his Garage. He had no idea that it was even a Hosta.
This particular type was small and dense last year. I'm not sure if they will be different this year. I found it in a pile of sand and dirt.

I really just want to think I know what it is so I can call it something but when people ask I just say "the little green one". Sad

Any help would be appreciated.

I also have TWO more that I don't know about.

1.) This one is very tall when full grown and it stays one shade of green. Its shiny when fully grown. If I remember correctly it had white blooms.

2.) My neighbor pulled this one out of his pond in 2013. It's green, white and yellow I believe. It gets very full and has light purple flowers when its blooming. This one also spreads very fast. I've split it 3 times.
(I will post when it gets bigger if the one leaf is not enough Crossing Fingers! )

6 - Fire and Ice - now I think something I wrong with this one. I got it last year and it didn't do great so now this is what's happening so far this ear. This little one is shorter than my pinky. Rolling on the floor laughing
Do you think I should replant it deeper maybe?

Hi Mlmoose, most of the hostas you have shown us pictures of aren't filled out enough to identify. Maybe when they open up a bit more someone can help. Smiling

Ticker makes a good point. Hostas can look a lot different in a few weeks than they do now.
For the last two pictures, it looks as though they might have had some frost-heave over the winter. You could add a bit of soil on top rather than disturbing the roots by replanting them.

Thank you Ticker, I thought the same thing as I was posting. I figured I would post anyway. So I will just post again in a few weeks.

Thank you ViolaAnn, I will definitely be adding more soil.
