Rhino Hide is a hosta with very think leaves, hence the name.

While working with these photos I noticed a fuzzy edge on the flower petals.

mine didn't get a chance to flower, they were planted pretty late in the season. Can't wait till spring/summer for these to bloom! Yours is a beauty.

I lost the one shown above - bad location.

I put one in my "New Garden" last year which should be a good location.
Rhino Hide on the left and June on the right.

A lot of mine are looking "odd". Something took out the crowns in the ground (voles or root competition) and in pots (too much water?). I didn't lose the plants - they are all just a bunch of tiny fragments that look like overgrown seedlings. I'm still replanting with wire baskets to keep the voles off and trying to figure a way to get rid of the chipmunks. I think they are a big part of the problem with their tunneling under everything and opening up areas for the voles to follow.

I had to dig up Stiletto-fragmented single roots left , same thing with ripple effect. I dipped the roots into rooting hormone, added biotone starter and piled mole max pellets into the new planting holes and pray for the best. Something even got into my raised mini garden and got to my High Society-only two roots left I did the same transplanting to it. Many of mine look smaller. But its only the beginning of June, hopefully will get to full size again. Had a pretty dry winter, so that may be why mine look smaller. But getting a lot of rain now.
Good luck to you.
