And this is Fragrant Dream, Hostapedia says darker green and faster growing than Fragrant Bouquet.

The third new one is Love Pat.

Anyone have pics of mature specimens of any of these?

Holy Mole is a very beautiful hosta. Does it stay that color all year?

I love the color on your Love Pat. I think I like the green better than when it's blue.

Nice late-season grabs, Hostahosta. I wish Mr. Cory's was close to me. Sorry, no mature pics. Mine are only slightly bigger than yours. Actually, your 'Fragrant Dream' is bigger than mine. Nice pics by Paul, though.

Givemeflowers, yup, in most light conditions, 'Holy Mole' keeps it's colors very nicely. Great-smelling flowers, too. : )

HostaHosta...you sure picked up some beauties....loving Hole Mole!! And that's quite the size of leaves on your Love Pat....And no wonder I love your HM...in it I also see Avocado and Guacamole...one big, happy family...I think I'm going to add Holy Mole to keep my Guacamole company and keep adding fragrance to my garden....not to mention the rhyme....holy mole guacamole..

Thanks for doing your part in enabling me! Lol

Note to Don: I guess the hosta quest never ends, huh? :0). I am SO GLAD you inspired me to get GUac.

Note to Paul and Old-dirt: your plants? . . . Just gorgeous!!!!!! Paul...adorable "windmill" ... You've just inspired me to spray paint my black garden tea trolley the colour of your Love Pat and chair! Thanks! :-)

Old Dirt, that's an awesome 'Holy Mole'. I think next season, mine will be five years old. If it looks like anything close to yours, I'll be ecstatic.

Thx Jo & Don. It is my plant and one of my favorites. It is also one of the last to go dormant, still looks good here while several others are looking poor. I think next year I will try to add more from that family or group.

Very nice h.'Holy Mole' shown here, thanks! Mine is planted just this year, got it from LOTG, but looks beautiful. I have also others of that family, love them all, especially that they like the sun. I have 2 h.'Guacamole', 2 'Avocado', 'Fragrant Dream' and just got a 'Fried Bananas' from Glenbrook Farm. People must see me bending down to enjoy the flowers of those, nice scent. Bernd

My h. 'Holy Mole' a month ago.
