Anyone have Rare Breed?

As I was working up my hosta wish list over the winter, I saw that my favorite source for hostas had a new hosta, Rare Breed. I wasn't able to find a lot of picutres of it, but really liked what I saw. Does anyone have it? What can you tell me about it?

I bought mine on Friday. Have to figure out a place to put it. Wondering how much sun it can take.

It is going to be a beauty -- I think morning sun may be best??

I just got one last year. I've got it in morning sun for about 4 hours. Thus far it's doing OK, but it's certainly not what I would call vigorous. I really do like the tri-colored leaf on this one.

Here's a liner picked up last weekend. Hopefully it fills the new pot with roots by fall.

I got mine at the end of last season and it is only one eye but the leaves are much bigger this year and are starting to show the great colors.

I got one in the middle of the summer last year. It's come back well but is growing slowly. Don't have a picture yet, which tells you that I haven't been impressed with it. It needs more time.
