As promised, here is the winner of the search for a Top Gun hosta for 2014.
So sorry, folks......I have taken longer than a week, I realize but had to research the winner and a few others for availability before deciding, lol
It really is a difficult choice as all submissions are just beautiful, aren't they?
I've compiled the list....the asterisk in front of hosta name indicates I have it.
*Liberty - Dan
Montana Aureamarginata - Sunnywood
On Stage-Paula. ***sport of Montana
Dream weaver-Mctavish's sister
*Big daddy-Don B
*June - Tiddisolo
Foxfire Palm Sunday - Vanessa
Wishing Well - Funnthsun
*Lakeside Shore Master - Phil
*Great Expectations - NHL
...and the WINNER IS.............
H. 'ON STAGE'. - - - - submitted by Paula!
I looked at many, many pictures and it stayed consistently beautiful in various stages of growth.....reminds me a bit of Paul's Glory (which I do not have). Paula, in my garden it will be known as "On Stage Paula" ...you are in great company with "Guacamole Don", "So Sweet BK"...
FYI--- it took me 3 days to arrive at a decision and some research. I had to review what I already had....did I have anything similar....that sort of thing.
I must say though, I'm still torn over the others! Don't anyone be surprised if sometime during the next growing season I post other new acquisitions....and they are all from this thread....they might just get priority over my want list.

Thanks Jo for letting us know the winner. On Stage is on my want list too. It is such a lovely hosta. Good choice. The others were certainly beautiful hostas worth considering for anyone's wish list!
Jo Thank you I feel honored. I cannot wait to show my friends at lunch tomorrow. I hope I have enabled everyone to get an On Stage this spring. I am in great company with bk and Don. Paula
Thank you, NHL! I WANT IT N O W!!! Not wait till spring! I hope you get one too.
I just shovelled the driveway for the first time this season after returning from babysitting....ugh...winter is here :-(. But...good snow blanket for all the hosta out there :-)
Paula, you are quite welcome and I am so glad you responded to the thread along with the others....some heavy contenders there! There is so much I wanted to say, but will save it for next spring...after I pick it up!
