I know. The color changes are really nice on these. I have a little Juha that looks identical to your first picture (not the one in the top right corner on some of these frames). I'll dig it out and really confuse things.

My Hanky Panky doesn't really seem to grow. I've had it for at least 3 years and it's been in the same spot for most of that time, but it just kind of sits there & stays about the same size. Maybe slightly larger than last year. Am I the only one who has this problem with it??

Reldon, what the blazes are you doin' up at this time.... go to bed...

All kidding aside.... mine's truly showing its heritage this year thus far, it's vigorous like most anything from Hyacinthina oughtabe...but heck, it's gittin' late here too.

I did open a post on the same matter two weeks ago on a Dutch Hosta forum.

I have two hosta Hanky Panky.

While they both emerged like this :
Image,

they now seem two completely different plants.

The first one has only a small amount of sun, but shows consistent colouring and keeps the nice broad margins
Image

The second plant got a lot of sun (5-6 hours/day starting from 10h00 AM. Since a month or so, I took it out of the sun and placed it into the shade. The second flush of leaves has a wider margin then the first flush, that seems to have lost a large part of the margin...
Image

From now on, not too much sun anymore for this plant

I think I've just added 'Yellow Polka Dot Bikini' (which is apparently like 'Hanky Panky' but smaller and 'Cabaret' to my wish list.

Ed, here's my 'Hanky Panky'. It's spent the bulk of the season in full sun and its pot got pretty hot during the day over most of June and part of July. I moved it into a cooler spot around July 10th or so and even though its still in a lot of sun, the pot no longer gets heated up since it is jammed tight on all 4 sides. As you can see, the 2nd flush leaves are all developing the green edge that was missing from the early leaves. I much prefer the 2nd flush leaves and I'll make sure that next season it doesn't get so hot and will stay more shaded. This was the tiniest of divisions last year and I'm happy to see it flesh out much better this season, I think I can see the start of a 2nd shoot to the right, that would be just fine with me.

Hi Mel, I don't know how big it gets. The plant I'm showing is in it's second year and is about 2 feet across. The eyes themselves don't seem that big but I picked up another one early this season that was two huge eyes - a lot bulkier then what I had. It must have been cut off a very mature plant so it seems it can get big. But with all the color changes it goes through it must look really good as it get bigger.
