Cathedral Windows...

This plant isn't in the garden,but a true 'driveway hosta',as it is planted right by the driveway in partial shade. I think I should have planted it farther back from the driveway,because it is already hanging over it. It is about twice the size it was last year. Phil

It is a good grower... I give it 4'... and if you like this one - I'm especially fond of Avocado from the same family...

Phil, if that cement is your driveway, I say it is just about ON the driveway not merely hanging over it.

I got one about two weeks ago, and it hasn't skipped a beat, going great guns and is looking so good. Of course, it is a fine member of the plantaginea family of fragrant hosta.

If you can wait until it gets dormant to move it, choose a spot where its good looks, beautiful blooms, and bright color can be seen by folks coming to your front door. It's a "front yard" sort of hosta.

Paul,my list this year is;
Blazing Saddles
Frosted Mouse Ears
Moonstruck
Empress Wu
Old Glory
Lakeside Lagoon
Spring Fling
Risky Business( but it may not be that)
Pathfinder
Regal Supreme
Not as many as some people got,but it's too late now,as the weather has turned very hot and dry again,so I'm done for the year. All I have to do now is keep these babaies alive till' fall. Thanks for looking! Phil

Nice list Phil. I keep forgetting that I "must have" Spring Fling.

Cathedral Windows is a great grower in our gardens too.
