Presidential hostas

By my count, there are 9 hostas named for presidents, several of which are in Peter Ruh's presidential series. All were 19th century office-holders except Theodore Roosevelt. I've never seen any of these and wondered if anyone on the forum has ever tried one or more. Does anyone have any of the following with a picture you would share?

Thomas Jefferson
John Q. Adams
Andrew Jackson
Zachary Taylor
Abraham Lincoln
Ulysses S. Grant
James A Garfield
Grover Cleveland
Theodore Roosevelt

Thanks for this. Several of those on your list are not shown in the Hosta Library, and several are not U.S. presidents. But at some point, the hostas so-named undoubtedly all existed. I still hope that perhaps someone has one or more to show. The Ulysses S. Grant is supposed to be very nice.
