Oh, my!!!! That's a beauty. How big is it, anyway? It looks to be maybe 5 or 6 feet across the top?

Last time I saw it, it was at least 10 feet wide. Was it last year or the year before...it's got to be 15 feet at least now.

Oh my, how beautiful! Those ripples are amazing.

How long have you had this plant? and what are you feeding it? :lol:

I just got mine from Chris this year. It has a spot with plenty of room to grow.

Reldon, first I have to turn it yellow, THEN give it red petioles. I have an '04 seedling 'City Lights' x 'One Man's Treasure' that's got similar features, wavy, but not piecrusted, margins, and red petioles. Probably won't be that large, though.

Pia, this will be its 5th yr. in my garden. George, I'm not a hybridizer, so I don't do crosses (or very few, then loose track!) I leave that work up to people like you :wink: I'm not sure I'd care for all that red :???: nope, don't think so! Wish I had the foresight to plant that dicentra next to this hosta :eek: :lol:
Glad you enjoyed, thanks everyone for looking :D
