H. Alex Summers
For the second year in a row, Alex Summers is my favorite hosta. It grows quickly, has a beautiful upright stance, and has that subtle blend of colors that appeals to me. A mutation of Gold Regal, it was registered in 1989 and is named after one of the founding members of the American Hosta Society. I notice that only a handful of the lists in Paul's Top Twenty include this one, but I would highly recommend it.
