No pics yet and we had snow today. But 'Korean Snow' is mostly unfurled as it 'Chinese Sunrise' and SOME of my 'Undulata Albomarginata'. Many others are up two or three inches - 'Liberty' has great longs 5" spikes but is not yet unfurled. Time to make my list and do a search for all of them.

I couldn't tell you which are which because I didn't mark them. I have about 40 different hosta and the names I know I have are Sagae, Liberty, Guacamole, Stained Glass, Green Sheen, June, Janet, Sum and Substance, Blue Angel, Regal, Lemon Lime, Sun Power, Just So. A lot of them were passalongs and given to me with no names.

I don't have Allegan Fog.

Thanks Susan, I think I saw Allegan Fog and what a beautiful hosta, I just ordered one but it will be small for a while. I need to get out to the nursery bed and dig up some of the larger hostas and pot them up or something. Green Grin!

Susan, if you can take the individual pictures and post them on the plant id forum they might be able to help and we can do some guessing here also. Green Grin!

Raspberry Sundae sure is pretty, but I had mine only in a pot last summer. No idea about it's slug tolerance yet.

here are a few -- this is in Wisc.

the Alex Summers I got from Jody [DG] a few yrs ago, it has outgrown it's home in IL, so i potted it and brought it North -- hope I can find the perfect place for it.

Very, very nice Terese, Funny you should post Alex Summers, I have been going back and forth for so long. After seeing yours I definitely want it, such a beauty! Where did you have it planted? Morning sun? How many hours? Green Grin!
Beautiful Mice as well. Thumbs up

AlexS was at home, in IL, full shade tucked behind a pine tree and an air conditioner.... maybe 1 hr of sun, if it was lucky.

It was on my "wants list" at DG, and Jody contacted me and said she'd give me a piece... a yr went by and i figured she forgot -- i was not going to 'nag' for a free plant... so i purchased one at FireFox Gardens [now out of Business], then Jody contacted me stating she had been busy with a wedding and found Alex ready to ship out to me.... so now i have two.

the one from Jody is much larger than the one from FF. I figure since it was sent with the DG TLC.

but i'll keep them both in Wi. I absolutely love this one.

I got this Frances Williams on sale at Hallsons and I lost it. Forgot I planted it because it came as just a sprout and when I found it on other side of house it has done a lot of growing in less than two weeks.
