Oh show off your Os!
btw post as many photos as you wish. There are no rules but fun.
Here is one of my H.'Orange Marmelade', growing protected against afternoon sun behind a conifer. Bernd
H.'Olive Bailey Langdon'.

Ocean Isle - El Dorado sport, leaves seem to have matured last year
October Sky - 2nd year
Olive Branch - a unique color among hosta, this pic is early May
On Stage - arrives late, but worth waiting for as it definitely commands the stage
My Olive Bailey Langdon is young but stood up well to all the scourges that descended on my garden last year.
Orange Marmalade (year 1)
(On Stage just jumped onto my lust list!)
Same old same old - but just in case some of you can't remember what yours looked like when they were babies....
H. 'On Stage'
and H. 'Orange Marmalade'
but I'm going to search for 'Olive Branch' and 'Ophir'!
Jan, the more hostas the merrier. My Orange Marmalade is smaller than yours.
I can't wait for my On Stage to be as big as Paul's and Mctavish's.
The only other O that I have is Ogon Tachi. I bought it because I like upright hostas. It's supposed to get 20" high by 39" wide but look at that scape. I planted it in a sheltered location beause of the height of the scape. Ogon means gold in Japanese and I believe that Tachi is an area of Japan but I could be wrong about Tachi.

Olive Branch just jumped onto my want list.
Here's my Old Glory,first year in the garden;July 2012. Phil

Here are a couple more. Phil
Gesila, what kind of light is your Orange Marmalade in? My plant has never achieved that colour. Perhaps I should move it from its current position (a little late afternoon sun)?
Orange Marmalade in June. Morning sun afternoon shade.
Hmmmmm, well here we go, the OOOoooos.
Old Faithful OS, with two other fragrant hosta, Warwick Essence and plantaginea 'Japonica, new arrivals in October.

One Man's Treasure....how is it my garden clog keeps sliding into the images!
Orange Marmalade on June 1, 2012
and Orange Marmalade in August after I moved it to get more really late sun.
Oze, a small hosta which is supposed to have a variegation.

Every year it acts like it missed it's cue, but then, there it is.
