The big dark green one at 11 o'clock is Gunsmoke, the white margined one at 4 o'clock is Emily Dickenson (just barely showing at 1 o'clock is Beckoning and at 3 o'clock Jack of Diamonds) and the one directly in front is First Frost.

That's a nice hosta garden...exactly the look my wife is looking for - lots of variety and full but with slight separation between plants.

A great choice for hosta of the day! I had put off getting this one, thinking that it would be close enough to Regal Splendor
that I didn't need them both. Then I saw the row of them at Hallson's last year and changed my thinking on the spot.
It's been a good grower, and is really much different than Regal Splendor, at least to my eyes.
And time remembered is grief forgotten,

Welcome to the forums Mark.

Hosta 'Tom Schmid' is a white edged sport of Hosta 'Krossa Regal', found and named by Michigan nurseryman Tom Schmid. It is a really attractive plant, and yes, the coloring is a lot like El Nino but on a larger scale.

Ok thank you for that to be honest I have a regal spledor that looks similar still infancy stages at the moent though. Most of my Hostas are new as I had to leave most before the move. My best performer this year has to be Striptease one of the few older ones I brought with me. Personal favourite tho is Francee however just a baby at the mo alas I left my BIG Francee. my so called Patriot hasnt turned out to be Patriot at all its yellow edged not fully sure of id yet but suspicions of a wide brim or F Aurio alas.
Guacamole Has done very well tho 2 divisions when pirchaed 3 months ago now 7 and getting BIG wooooo
