I bought this one in 2004 and it really didn't do much until this year. I really like the way it looks. Very attractive leaves.

Wow...that is a major change. I dont think that looking at the first pic I would have bought it originally! It sure looks great now though! 8-)

Joan I would never know it was the same plant! I knew hostas change as they mature but that is incredible!!

Looking good! Mine is getting some size to it this year, too. I was just weeding around it, and noticed that it's getting the look I bought it for. A friend of mine has one on the front corner of his yard, by the driveway. As soon as you turn onto his street, you can see that hosta, and it just reels you in!

I thought I had some pics of Bobby Sue. And I found them on Photobucket this morning. These were taken at the end of May. It's even bigger now.

I got mine in the hosta swap at the 1st get-together Jimmy Mac had in 2003. I think it was just a single division then. It is definitely a fast grower!! Last year in its 3rd year in my garden, mine was 17" H x 36" W & leaves were 6 7/8" W x 9 1/2" L. This year it's up to 19 1/2" H x 48" W & the leaf I measured was 7" W x 9 1/2" L. So give it some room!! :wink: Mine has plenty for this year...
