WANTED: Cheapo hostas to get started

I know serious hosta collectors will invest a lot into their collections. I'm not a serious collector and I'm not looking for rare plants.

I would like to aquire some hosta's to fill in along the north side of my house. I have 2 hosta's that came with a house I puchased. I don't know what kind they are, the leaves are solid. medium green heart shaped, the flowers are pink and shoot straight up from the center in the fall.

I don't know how to post pics here, but can put a pic on my web site and provide a link if anyone would like to see them.

I would like to trade or pay postage to get a few cheapo hosta's if anyone has an abundance and would like to share them.

Heck Rindalin, if you were anywheres close to me here in Central NJ, I would be glad to give you a ton of undulatas. They are what I got when I moved to my house and I have propagated them over and over and I now have a truckload of them that need dividing again. Trouble is, I now have moved on to much nicer looking hosta varieties and am in the process of replacing the undulatas until I have just a few of them around. Are you anywhere near me in New Jersey?
