Here is a somewhat better picture of the little unknown hosta. Look familiar to anyone?

never to second guess chris...

and the pic is out of focus.. but it would fit in the tiara range ... and i have no clue what the limey version of that is.. lol.. could be limey lisa.. lol ..

early color can sometimes be a bit 'off' .. for ID purposes.. on a green hosta .... especially if forced early or grown indoors ... [and a hosta in bloom in feb has been forced early]

Sorry about the somewhat out of focus picture, that is what you get trying to take a close-up with a tablet computer. In the dark.

I looked up Limey Lisa on the hosta library and I think you are right! Thanks! I love it, so cute!

A little better picture, maybe, in the daylight.

I'm pretty sure Chris was right, Limey Lisa, but thanks anyway, Phil!

Looks like my Limey Lisa. As I recall, I really liked this hosta because the leaves had great substance, kind of thick and leathery.

If Limey Lisa has thick leathery leaves, then I'd be likely to place her next to Lederhosen. That hosta becomes extremely leathery and almost oily shiny dark green. It is a leaf I find very distinctive, and surely qualifies for the 10 foot rule.

Love those compact smaller hosta with a lot of personality, like your Limey Lisa. It means I can have MORE HOSTA in my limited space.
