My new Grand Prize, just planted this last weekend. I'm trying it at the sunny end of a bed.

Great looking hostas. I like the tiaras. Eleven, let us know how GP does with more sun.

HHH, what is that lovely green cupped hosta behind your GP? I've been trying to duplicate a hosta in my garden that I saw a picture of on one of the garden sites. So far I've tried 'Deep Pockets' and 'Cup of Grace'. The plant I saw on that web site was medium, very symmetrical, all the cupped leaves very neatly upturned.

irawon,

the background plant is Hosta 'Teaspoon', another small, tightly clumping, unique, subtle one we like a lot!

HH, thanks for the info. My 'Teaspoon' does not look as good as yours. It has remained a rather flat mound, guess because of tree root competition.

I grew Grand Prize in more sun and found that it bleached out. I moved it back into morning sun and it's bright yellow color has returned.
