Here is my NOID. I believe it is Fortunei Aureomarginata, but I don't trust myself to say for sure. I know it is not fully unfurled for the year, but it looks a lot like my other hosta by that name...was my guess correct?????

Thanks,

Gabby

Well, it's a little early to tell, but that is what is looks like to me. 10 vein pairs which matches. Leaf shape looks right also. Assuming it grows into a mound and not an upright, it should be Fortunei Aureomarginata. A very common Hosta, but a beautiful one, IMO.

Thank you, I definitely agree, it is a beautiful hosta. In our area the more common hosta was all that were available in this area until this year. The few better nurseries are finally getting on the hosta bandwagon, which makes me very happy!

I think that's a good guess. The coloring is right, and mine is also behind its neighbors in emerging and unfurling.
