Help me ID these 2 please.

These hosta's came from a local reputable nursery which is also my former employer. I acquired them several years ago when we purchased a house that has a lot of shade. I'm hoping you guys can help me ID them. Unless its a smack in the face hosta (what I like to call the 10 foot rule) I'm not so great with id's.

Your help is most appreciated!

They look like Fragrant Bouquet and Gold Standard.

Or possibly Stained Glass for number 2.

Noid #1 certainly looks like my fragrant bouquet.

RE: Help me ID these 2 please.

After looking it up yes I would definitely agree that number one is Fragrant Bouquet. Thanks so much Steve, Evermore and Barb! One down one to go! :)

Kate, how are you holding up? Healing quickly, I hope? :-)

Your second photo is a dead ringer for Stained Glass...Evermore Steve has the bingo! Pics 1&2 on Hosta Library confirm your pic.

Wish all were this easy!

Take care,

Hey Jo!

I'm hanging in have some issues from the concussion, I keep having 'word salad' I know in my head what I want to say but what's coming out of my mouth is entirely different. :( Luckily there's an edit button for GW. Now if there was something for my migraines and back pain! :)

Thanks for your help and thinking of me.

Mystery solved!

RE: Help me ID these 2 please.

Advil gel capsules, extra strength for migraine...give it a try..might even help the back hopefully at the same time. Your "word salad" made me chuckle at your great sense of humour - but it must be very disconcerting for you. I'm sure you must be under medical scrutiny for a while...a concussion can bring about the strangest side-effects, can't it?

I was admiring my Guardian Angel today, took a pic and thought of you, all at the same time. I think I will always associate G A with "Kate".

Have a great day!


P.S. You have well-grown hostas, too! Every pic so far shows that your hostas are very happy - and large/mature.

RE: Help me ID these 2 please.

Awakening Angel - Another hosta to associate with you, Kate. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

RE: Help me ID these 2 please.

Jo thanks so much. I am under the watchful eye of my MD, my Chriropractor, husband and sister in law! And if I'm not careful my mother and MIL lol. Meanwhile I'm so frustrated, I mean I could be outside gardening or visiting my local hosta haunts! :P

The word salad is kinda freaking me out. My husband drove me to pick up a prescription and I walked past the entrance and around the side of the building until I caught myself and had to walk back. I was glad my husband was not paying attention or he would have stayed home another day. I have a Made in the Shade order coming tomorrow that he doesn't and will not know about! :P

Donna that's a gorgeous hosta! Thanks for thinking of me!!! :)

RE: Help me ID these 2 please.

I, and H. ' Katie Q', Hope you soon feel better, too! : )

Hang in there!!

Don B.

I did not know of your mishap, Kate.
Here is the biggest and bestest and newest flower to open in my garden, a six inch long Mama plantaginea fragrant bloom, just opened at dark tonight. I was there taking every few seconds a new shot. This one is better in focus, I have a wiggly hand, so not fully open. You should smell it! Wow.

And the Advil, that is the best. I use the gelcaps too, Take with food.
