Beautiful hostas. :D :D

How big is your Leading Lady? It looks as big as an Abba Dabba Do, but perhaps I'm estimating the scale of your hosta incorrectly. I may need to add this one to my garden. And Cowrie is another one I don't have, love the form and leaf shape of this one too as well.

Cowrie is interesting when it is young, but my plants are probably 10 years old now and they have lost the curled edges and are almost completely smooth like any other hosta :???: I guess after 10 years it just isn't shy any longer...

Thanks for sharing the pics :)

They're all looking good, Alexa!! :P How old is your Xanadu?

Donna - I have Leading Lady & it's about the same size as my Abba Dabba Do. Both leaf & plant size.

Thanks Reldon!

I don't have 'Abba Dabba Do', so I wouldn't be able to give a comparison anyway. 'Leading Lady' is LARGE in my garden. She makes wuite the statement!
