This is the latest pic of Sharp Dressed Man. It shows it very well;you can't even see the hail damage,or dirt on it! Take a look. Phil

Could you explain what kind of TLC may have been necessary to get it to thrive in that spot. Also, I would love another pic from a bit further away that includes the ferns. What kind of tree is that? I couldn't identify any leaves.

Christine,that plant is right near the trunk of two huge Oak trees,which have grown together at the ground. As for TLC,my answer is,dig hole;plant hosta;water in;mulch,and walk away. Nature does the rest! The ferns in the background are just native ferns that grow everywhere in the woods. The hosta leaves to the right of SDM is Hanky Panky. Phil

I'm impressed with it growing right up close and personal with that big tree as well. It sure looks happy.
