A good grower, starting to take on some character in the leaves. Center brightens to yellow in sun and heat of summer. Medium to large in size. This is 3rd season - after two years grown in a pot.

Lovely LSM, Paul. Mine is only in its second year. Just wondering whether you leave those leaves on the ground all summer as a mulch. I've been removing mine because I thought leaving the leaves would encourage slugs and earwigs. But you don't appear to have that problem if you do. Your hostas all appear happy with what you do.

Two very nice plants. Phil, that light you have in the forest is ethereal.

irawon, I do use leaves for mulch. Only one bed where I get much slug damage. I use Bug-Getta where ever I see slugs...and it helps. Also 10% ammonia to water sprayed around base and down petioles. Usually spray at dusk or later when slugs are starting to get active. Haven't done much this year.
