This is a hosta I had trouble growing . I bought it as a TC and this is its third summer. Finally I think its starting to show some life! :D

    What a beauty! This colour combination: gold plus white, yum! is one I particularly covet.

    Slow and steady wins the race with hostas, you know - those tricky low-chlorophyll ones are particularly worth the wait. Yours has done very well, 't seems.

    Rumor has it that this is one that hates to be disturbed.

    However, the local gardens split up their mature specimen and sold them and the two very nice divisions I got are growing like crazy.
