I just love this hosta...love the shape, the ripples, the size. It delights me.

Neptune is one that McTavish got for me when visiting her sister in Washington last spring. What a friend!

Jan, my Niagara Falls was just like that the year before it finally got wavy. You'll probably see a big difference this year.

I predict Faye's plants will surpass mine in no time. She has perfect light conditions, hopefully no roots and has left room for them to grow. It's going to be fun to watch.

Another Niagara Falls, 5 years old planted in shade getting minimal sun in my oldest hosta bed. Good grower even with tree root competition. My husband likes this one.

I bought 'Nancy' for a friend named Nancy. I liked it so much I bought a second for myself. Mine is planted under spruce trees that have very shallow roots. I'm wondering whether it would keep its yellow colour longer with more sun. i also think I might have planted mine too deep as I've seen others that appear a bit more upright.

Steve I totally agree on Myrle's Niagara Falls. Here is the view of it from 2011 and it only gets better each year. The cute little grandson now has red hair and also has grown lots

My Niagara Falls is special for me because I don't often get plants to get to the mature size or if I do it takes forever. That is due to my tendency to cram them together and move them around. I'm working on a family (people) album and had just put this picture together to compare how both Niagara Falls and my grandson had grown . Both are thriving. Yes, he has red hair which sadly his mother keeps very short. Love that red hair!

Oh boy, I somehow did not see the N's until now, so I get to be the one to follow Merle! Who can top that set of Niagara Falls and Nana's growing boy! Always lovely photos and very well grown hosta as well. I guess we'll get to see your boy growing up and breaking hearts down the road, huh.

Anyway, sigh, here are my offerings to the N's.

Nakaiana, said to be very fertile

Nakaiana beside June for size comparison
(and hopes they cross pollenate)

Nathan's Nirvana behind Stiff Upper Lip, both Stuart Asch plants

Navajo, one of Van Wade's Native Americans which arrived after Oct 1st near dormancy, but in November was still going.

Niagara Falls in a big pot with Aqua Velva, a fragrant guy.

Hosta 'Naked Lady'

Here is a photo I took of the best Niagara Falls I've ever seen. It's located in Woodstock, Ontario. It belongs to a fellow collector.

This Niagara Falls is huge, shows again that future landscapes will require a lot of replanting of hostas.
