All good looking hostas but Guardian Angel and Flemish Sky have such an unusual shape to them. Makes me think about getting these for my collection...

Those are all pretty! I didn't realize that there were such large streaked hostas (that is called streaked, right?).

I really like that Flemish Sky and Jimmy Cracked Corn (odd name. lol!).

Guardian Angel turns pretty much all green as the year goes on but it sure looks cool while it has that misted center, Party Music.
I think it was GreenGuy who talked me into getting that one a couple of years ago.

ah... I heard about one of those... that explains why I couldn't find it - I kept looking under Ph... and expected it to be a light green...

hmmmm...my Guardian Angel keeps it's same colors all season. But then again, it gets no direct sunlight at all. Maybe that's why? :hmm:

Gorgeous pics! Looks like I'm adding Earth Angel and Guardian Angel to my wish list. They'll go great with my Blue Angel.

Guardian angel is my favorite hosta. I saw angel eyes at bob kuk's and had to have one then one thing led to another and i ended up with guardian angel. Mine only gets a small anount of morning sun and really holds it color for all or most of the year (maybe it is just the plant - i don't know)

maybe mine is angel eyes or they could be the same hosta who knows

Fence I really like your earth angel. The colors and streaking are fantastic.

if i ever get any time i really need to take some new pics but here is a leaf pic of guardian angel from last year
