Hi All--These two shots are of the west (downhill) end of the 40 foot bed that has been shown the last couple of days.

Hank, what's the bright yellow Hosta in the second picture? Very nice bed. Hopefully it will recover.

George-That plant is Marilyn. Here are my comments from when I did it as my POTD, followed by a 2005 photo.

Hi All--Marilyn is a variety that I don't think can pass the 10 foot rule. It does provide a bright spot but then, so do a number of other more interesting varieties. I purchased Marilyn in 2000 and it grows in a spot that gets 2-3 hours of mid-day sun. Its measurements went 17x7, 22x11, 27x14, 36x13, and 36x15. Zilis' listing is 43x17. It has been attractive to slugs.
