Nice Hosta banner Paul!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thanks Paul for all your wonderful images that you keep delighting us with. And this is another - very simple, but very effective.

Do you mind my asking if you know the name of the bluish Hosta?
I'm trying to identify the first one that I bought in '83 or '84. Seems to me it had a species name.

I'll try to get some photos and put them in the Plant ID Forum.

Thanks everyone. I took the picture which I made the banner from in a friends garden a couple of years ago and couldn't ID them at the time. I'll look through some pictures and see if I can figure it out. It wasn't Halcyon was it?

Hi Paul, I don't think the bluish one is Halcyon. Its leaves are smaller and more compact, and the ribbing is not as strongly furrowed.
I'll include here, two photos of Halcyon.

I posted three photos of my NOID Hosta - see the Plant ID forum: Hosta ID - (see the new posting) and had a wonderful response from @crawgarden, suggesting mine could be Hyacinthina or Fortunei Hyacinthina. I'll have to do more checking.
Thanks for your interest, Paul, and your dedication to Hostas.
