nope mine is Christmas tree. I was referring to size of her plant. All can't be perfect until they are given a fighting chance. Mine got too much sun so had to be moved. I am sure you can show us all a perfect one though Ken

I'll add that NBC is, far and away, the most reliable white-centered Hosta here, so is oft used where a white-centered one is needed.

Merry,

hey HH ...

whilst i might agree.. there might be a white centered undulata ... which is more reliably used ...

but i think 'bud is wiser' .. might be much better .. lol .. mostly because it is so different.. isnt it????

Hey Ken, what books have you been reading? Perhaps I don't have the latest scoop on these, but I thought NBC is a sport of White Christmas, and Bud Is Wiser is a sport of Blue Mammoth. Lots of mine look the same with a little egg-nog... ;-)
