My Olive Bailey Langdon is young but stood up well to all the scourges that descended on my garden last year.

Jan, the more hostas the merrier. My Orange Marmalade is smaller than yours.

I can't wait for my On Stage to be as big as Paul's and Mctavish's.

The only other O that I have is Ogon Tachi. I bought it because I like upright hostas. It's supposed to get 20" high by 39" wide but look at that scape. I planted it in a sheltered location beause of the height of the scape. Ogon means gold in Japanese and I believe that Tachi is an area of Japan but I could be wrong about Tachi.

Gesila, what kind of light is your Orange Marmalade in? My plant has never achieved that colour. Perhaps I should move it from its current position (a little late afternoon sun)?
