Can you recommend a medium(ish) shiny plain green hosta? 'Devon Green' looks good to me. Others?
Lakeside Prophecy or Invincible?
Candy Dish, Garnet Prince, and Invincible.
Leather Sheen . . . very similar to Devon Green but slightly different growth pattern.
Another one I can recommend is Irish Luck. It gets larger than medium. But still a nice shiney dark green leaf with some pie crusting and semi upright.
Mine is new this month but still a general idea. :)
Another shiny dark green is Candy Dish, with a lot of ruffles edging a smooth and shiny leaf.
There is an older posting called "I want some interesting solid color " They are all dark green, lots of great pictures and lots of shiny. Was posted June 12th/12 or there abouts.
Lakeside Looking Glass. A medium by height. Has very good substance. This picture was taken May 23, 2012
Another recommendation for 'Irish Luck'. It is very, very shiny and I love the ruffled edges.
Medium-large Second Wind. Just picked it up this summer & it's a beauty.
Thanks all. Lots of good suggestions here - I'll see what the local growers still have on this list.
Also take a look at the thread of dark greens probably still on page one here, lots of pictures with that too.
One that I got which was fairly expensive (IMHO) was Braveheart. Short/low, dark, and shiny. Also handsome.:)
A good shiny one not mentionned yet is 'Joseph'. I got mine from Hosta Geek (in Nova Scotia) a few years ago.
I also agree with 'Irish Luck' and 'Lakeside Looking Glass'.
