Don - I wouldn't have expected any less from you than perfection. I was going to ask how you repair you leaves so holes aren't visible. Then I saw one hole in June. We can't hardly be perfect, right? (lol)

Very nice hostas, colors and photos. Thanks

Les

Don, love that Jekyll and Hide. The leaves on my Rhino Blue are very thick, they seem thicker than my Rhino Hide.

Pride and Joy is stunning. When will it be available?

It will be interesting to watch that Jekyll and Hide grow up. When will it be available?

You have some really great hosta! We really appreciate you taking the time to share them with us.

Totally beautiful, just beautiful.

And HostaLes, the French were the ones who believed that perfect beauty was sort of boring, and they are the ones who invented "beauty marks", like small moles etc, imperfections which made beauty that much more exquisite, and unique. (Might have led to caricature as well, like Bette Davis Eyes.)

Every perfect plant would be alike. The same. And, my DH tells me that in engineering there is something called "sameness death" --so that if it is all leveled out, all the same, then we have a "flatliner" situation. And I personally don't want to flat line any time soon.

So Don's plant has a beauty mark, I betcha.
