I just got into the Hostas myself. There were a few HUGE green ones at the Cottage when we bought it, and I jsut got around to splitting them this past week. They were taking over the place and crowding everything out. So I started poking around and found like 4000 different kinds, lol. I picked up these from a farm: Niagara Falls, Cameo, Great Expectations, June, Stained Glass, Patriot and Fire And Ice. Then I grabbed a Dream Queen from someone else, and that First Frost from HD. First Frost is supposed to be blue with a thin white margin, this apparently is a first frost trying to sport (mutate) into a whole new variant. I hope if does!
Anyway, when we split the huge ones I ended up creating a new garden bed for them so I just had to get more (see above). I also have White Feather, Blue Ivory and Brave Attempt on my want list, but I can't find a local grower with them (I like to pick my specific plants).
I also picked up a species Rosa Rugosa that should fit the Old House theme at a plant swap. It was a good garden weekend!! Of course, splitting the big hostas and making a new bed made a mess, since now everything needs to fill out again.
