Thanks, everyone for the nice feedback! Yes, they all look like crap now, for the most part. I need to take a pic of
Touch of Class tomorrow. It still is hanging in there. Might be pic worthy....Have to see.

I love the Deep Blue Sea. I just bought one this year and I think it will be one of my favorites over time. Yours looks so blue. How much light (or sun) does this plant get?

Buff, Deep Blue Sea is in high shade all day and is only in sun for about 2 hours, from 11 to 1, thereabouts.

Roxanne,
Your pics just took me right back to mid-summer. Thanks!
It's such a grey, depressing day today.

Pia, St. Paul is one of my favorite Hostas!! Imagine my disdain this last summer when I cut a pristine leaf for the leaf show and found it's unregistered. :( Problem is, I cut a leaf the year before, found out it wasn't registered, forgot, and did it again!! :lol: :lol:
My leaf got a blue ribbon, but I really wish someone would have registered the plant.......in the vast sea of look alikes we have now, yes it does look like a few others...but very worthy of registration, being a sport of Paul's Glory.

Rox,
Someday I hope my hostas will look like yours do! WOW! Beautiful combinations especially in the first photo.
What does it mean to say that a hosta isn't registered? I haven't been able to find the answer to that and don't understand why or how one could be named if it isn't registered. Thanks.

Rox, just went to look at the HL, and if I had not seen your pic here, it would have confused me... one blue and one green- and glossy :oops: do not tell anyone, I think those sprayed ones look slimy :oops:

So, please send your pic to Bob, then even I would know it is a blue one :wink:
