Hi Pia,

One that I discovered last year at Hallson's was a medium sized plant that is very upright... kind of a cross between a vase shaped hosta and a Praying Hands type. It is rectifolia 'Kinbuchi Tachi'. I bought one from Chris and then lots of tc's to sell. Very pretty hosta!

You might add 'Dee's Golden Jewel' and 'Yellow Highness'.

I got White Triumphator last year. The friend who was with me couldn't understand why I would buy 'another plain green'. I saw Viktoria's pic in the Hosta Library and put it on my list.

The info at that link is partly incorrect (first part). This is a gray-green plant and the flowers are not fragrant. It is nothing like S&S.

PP12622, assigned to Gerardus Heemskerk.
New and very large light gold. Much like 'Sum & Substance except very fragrant flowers. Ht: 75cm (30") SR Dia: 120cm (48").
Piet Oudolf introduction; selection of rectifolia with very tall scapes of pure white flowers.
An introduction from famous garden designer and nurseryman Piet Oudolf of Holland, this H. rectifolia hybrid has frosty green leaves of good substance that form an upright clump. Topped with stunning white flowers on very tall scapes. Not a fast grower but fantastic when mature.

I love the vase shaped ones too. To that end, I just ordered "Unforgettable" from Chris...

Hosta 'Unforgettable'
(ML)
Rounded leaves are lightly shiny, moderately corrugated, medium to dark green with a slightly wavy, golden yellow margin. It has heavy substance and a semi-upright, vase shaped habit.

Thanks, Viktoria. I meant to add on to my post that I was wondering why it is described as gold and like S&S. Mine is gray-green as well, and the leaves are not rounded. I hope the part about the fragrant flowers is true! Mine had already bloomed when I got it last year, so I'll have to wait and see.

Re: ‘White Triumphator’

OK, no one believed me. Far more frequently seen than the Hosta which pilfered the name:

Features of Species or Group: These tulips are centuries old. The pure white ‘White Triumphator’ is a superb garden plant. Tall-stemmed, it is excellent for formal bedding, but also for natural perennial borders. ...

Apparently, someone thought the flower looked like the tulip's flower.

Hey Dr Dave!

Glad to see you around, I was just thinking of you today and wondering how you were doing.

Any great baby photos to share??? I'm sure you have been busy with all sorts of sprouts! :lol:

PS - I believe you too George!

I also have grown 'White Triumphator' tulips, George, but never thought of them, just thought you had forgotten to take your Alzheimer's meds.
