I am excited to see how these hosta do in the upcoming years. Great Expectations I know is a touchy one but I decided to give it a try. Anyone else have any nice results with any of these varieties??

Risky Business

Great Expectations

El Nino

RE: New additions

Hallson's sent me El Nino last summer as a bonus plant. I like it a lot and it's grown modestly. Planted it next to its parent, Halcyon. They looked fabulous together until I washed the house and Halcyon gave up its blue for green. Hoping I get a second flush of growth from Halcyon to restore some of the blue.

RE: New additions

I have 2 Stitch In Time, new to me this year. I am hoping they don't revert. Risky Business is new this year too. It will be fun to compare our photos. Here's Stitch:

El Nino, looking about the same as when I got it last year. I take that back; I just compared pics, and it's added a few leaves. Looks fuller.
