Unfortunately none of my Hosta ID's are any longer available. Years ago they along with my Iris lost them in a storm that took all the tags and sticks out of the ground and played havoc with our gardens.

This is one that I purchased not too long ago and very few we buy at the farmer's markets are marked. This is just unusual and this is its first year coming back. Does anyone have any idea if it has a name? It is difficult to see and it looks very frail to me. The warm February and cold Spring has it browned a bit. Sorry the picture is not better.

JB, you could try posting your photos on the Plant ID Forum to see if perhaps someone recognizes your Hostas and can give you exact cultivar names but if it's not possible to ID them you could add the photos to the database at the general entry for all Hostas: Hostas (Hosta)

I don't know the name of your plant but it looks pretty unique, if it's the small plant in the foreground. I've moved the post to the Hostas forum.

Curly Fries would be my guess too.

I am sure it was pretty when I planted it last year. Should have taken a picture before the chickens got into that section. Also, the weather has not helped. I too think it may be Curly Fries also. I will keep trying to get a better picture as it grows. I hope it fills out more, just now it is really not very pretty, but being a hosta freak, I don't really care. I still love it. Rolling on the floor laughing

Thanks so much for your help. I will keep you posted.

I also thought maybe a young 'Curly Fries', but there are several newer hostas with long, wavy leaves. I'd watch it during the season and note whether it changes colour (CF will become more yellow). Also note the shape of the mound, when it blooms, the colour and shape of the flower and whether it's fragrant. All of those things would be helpful in making an ID.

This is what my 'Curly Fries' looked like when I'd had it a month back in 2012.
