Unknown Hosta

Teresa_MNJune 13, 2014

Does anyone have a suggestion on what this hosta is? Olive Bailey Langdon perhaps? Jen from Wisconsin suggested Great Arrival.

I got it last fall so I don't know if the colors will change as the summer progresses. Nor do I know a flower color. I can say that it's leaves slightly cup upward and are quite thick. Substance similar to Love Pat.

Thanks,
Teresa

Shot in the dark but maybe American Icon?

Teresa, it looks like a Frances Williams' sport to me... either Linda Sue or Sara's Sensation. I don't have Sara's Sensation. I posted this pic of Linda Sue recently.

Here's Great Arrival, a sport from Great Expectations, which is a faster grower than GE...at least for me. The torn leaves are due to my husband trying to help me by doing some raking.

Thanks for the help. I am leaning toward Linda Sue or Olive Bailey. Both of which this nursery has/has had.

Irawon and Jim - turns out it is Linda Sue. The nursery still had Linda Sue in the computer and could not find them in the greenhouse. I got the one in the picture last fall and another larger clump the other day.

I love the wide gold margins.
