The only "twistie" one that I have that's not a baby and I can think of is The Shining. It likes to twist on the tips.

It's funny, I had never really thought about it before, but I don't tend to buy the twisting hostas because my heucheras are twistie!

They don't have a straight line anywhere! Gotta like it.

'Riptide', just planted it in the earth today. Slug holes courtesy of Vermont. I think I'm really going to love this one. I just took a bunch of pics of it, but I can't capture how it looks 'for real'.

RE: Whirls, Swirls, Ripples, Waves, Curls, Twists and Turns

Don, wait until Riptide has some blooms on its scapes. Oh boy, that is also hard to catch. Here is the best I could do with mine. Which is soul satisfying to have. Mine was won at a benefit auction from Ed McHugh, and it has looked good from the start. Smoky colored pets and blossoms. Really nice leaves too.

The only thing it doesn't have, and I won't hold it against Riptide, is.....fragrance. :)

Wendy, you did not overload us. It was really satisfying to see such a beautiful run of photos. Inspiring too.

Let's see if I can get out of here with just one.So much rain, the troops are holding up well. I found two more pots not draining properly, so vigilance during a rainy spell sure pays off. That makes 5 I must repot.

Here is a new fragrant hosta from Savorys called Dan Patch (a famous trotting racer). Taken 8/12/13.

Another wavy one I can't wait to see in a few years is 'Frisian Pride'. It appears to be a rapid grower. It's doubled itself in a month! Next year I'm going to put it in a big, black ceramic pot to really show off its colors.

What do I have in my collection? I really had to think. I have a couple that have been posted. I hope you don't mind seeing mine. And I have one not posted yet! Yippee. Found one---even though I know some of you must have this one.) Who mentioned that you don't have to cut flower stalks off, but just bend them over? That's just what I did with this one.

Eleven, You have a pretty Komodo Dragon. Is the red plant to the left an Indian Pink? Nice.

Paul, it took me two minutes to scroll down to the bottom of this thread to respond about your Celtic Dancer. I was smitten first look, it has to go in the cluster I have of Candy Dish, Irish Luck, Celtic Uplands (which makes beaucoup seedpods) and I think something nice and yellow/green in the middle, maybe Smooth Sailing. Well, anyway, I am now looking for Celtic Dancer, not for the WISH list, but for the FALL ORDER list.
Fall is just around the corner, and most nurseries up nawth will not ship or dig after October 1st. So not much time left to find it.

This thread is killing me!

Paul, do you have Fruit Punch to go with your Eola Salad Bowl? It has all kinds of colors going on, but the squirrels ate mine this spring....before I peppered the pots.

Lakeside Down Sized has become my favorite small this year. Definitely wavy. Colorful too.

Love seeing everyone's hosta. They are beautiful.

plantbug, I have a few 'Tiny Ghost' Asiatic lilies next to 'Komodo Dragon'. I do have an Indian Pink elsewhere, but the rabbits keep eating it to the ground (they eat the lilies too, but late enough that I got a cage on this one in time).

Wendy, thank you!

Paul, your Illicit Affair is so very lovely, almost delicate looking...it is exquisite...the size, shape, colour...I really love it.

Hostahillbilly, I believe that just possibly, for starters, off the top of my head, between Jim, Paul and yourself, the three of you can carry this entire forum and have it covered . . . it's amazing how many varieties/cultivars you have! :-). I don't think there is a hosta out there that is not in someone's garden on this forum.

It is such a treat to be able to enjoy viewing so many new varieties, thank you for sharing.
