My husband was given some free bulbs that were dug from someone's yard (we don't know this person to ask them). Tag said hosta, so we planted them in our shade garden. This is what they look like, but I've never seen a hosta do this. Any ideas what this is??

Solomon's Seal, looks like a nice variegated variety. It will do well in your shade garden.

I love these plants. The shade was the perfect place to plant them.

Thank you! We planted several in our 2 shade gardens before they started growing this spring. Looks like we'll be moving a couple of these, don't want to block our bleeding hearts.
