All, I am still new to growing hosta. There is a hosta that came with the house a few years ago. It ~ 2.5' tall x 3' wide. Big leaves. Can you help identify it? I really like it and it has been easy to take care of.

Thanks in advance

Don't recognize the name, welcome to the Hosta Enablers Forum, Vivian. This Hosta strikes me as 'Paradigm'....

I won't be much help with your ID Vivian. I looked at some pictures of Paradigm and pieter may be right. Glad to see your posting. It took me a year to begin and now you can't shut me up. So at least I can say "welcome girl".

Thanks Pieter and Theresa for the help and encourage. So now I have some idea and searched for images of Paradigm. Some of the Paradigm pictures show wider dark green margins, while others have narrower margins (like mine). I guess it may have to do with the sun exposure.

Thanks again for the help. This has been a great forum to learn (and enjoy).

'Paul's Glory' is another possibility

I had a H.'Paradigm', 'Paul's Glory' and 'Gold Standard' relatively close to each other, and except for size and maturity they looked the same.

Looks like Paradigm to me.

What color are the blooms vivian? The PG and OG are fairly dark lavender. Paul's Paradigm looks like it has a white raceme!

All, thanks for the help. After Allnitro mentioned it could be a Paul's Glory. I searched the forum and found some postings on the similarities. So I guess it is a possiblitity.

Paul, the Paradigm picture you posted here is exactly what mine looks like.

This hosta's bloom is very light lavender. So maybe this is another indication that it could be a Paradigm?

My young Paradigm (all my hosta are YOUNG, some a little more mature because they came from mature clumps) is here. I think the Paradigms all are eye-catching.
