Forest Fireworks

The wife & I went on a road trip yesterday, this hosta "Forest Fireworks" grabbed my eye and forced me to bring her home.

In my rookie eyes I thought this would be a nice one to bring home, and my sweet wife agreed.

I agree, Ed. It does look like a good one to have (though I don't have it!!!). Randy Goodwin is the hybridizer, and he's got some good ones!
