Could this be Golden Scepter, Sweet Tater Pie, or Spotlight? Has 14/15 veins, leaf 8 3/4" x 11 1/4", blooming now and it is light purple.

RE: ID help

Could possibly be Spotlight. It's definitely not the other two. Why are those the only choices? Do you know where the Library is?

Why is it planted in a gravel pit.

I'm turning into Ken.

RE: ID help

These choices were from my old hosta list and I can not find the hosta. I went to the library but only found the pictures and not the description. It is in the gravel pit because I have hosta seedlings coming up in my gravel driveway w/o help from me. So, I am experimenting to see if gravel helps/hurts with help from me. Thank you Steve for the ID. (Ken says to throw them on the driveway)

At the Library there is most times a "my hostas database" that appears with the first pic that you can click on to get a description.

Otherwise there is a Registration link (below) from the American Hosta Society that will do the trick.

Sum and Substance?


RE: ID help

Babka, thanks for this info, it sure does help.

bkay, leaves aren't big enough to be S&S, I don't think. I have a S&S that is much bigger.
