first asked if it was Fragrant Bouquet-but I was searching the Hosta Library and now I remember purchasing Austin Dickinson and this has to be it.

Yup, I knew it looked familiar, and might be a slightly fragrant one, but couldn't place the name right away. Haven't seen Austin Dickinson mentioned in years.

Must be my intake of vitamins this month :lol: my memory is getting better. I got this one at least 5 years ago. I remember buying something that sounded like the actress Angie Dickinson and then it hit me.
Still looking for my Hosta Bette Davis Eyes I bought at the same time.

While looking for another hosta today, I came upon this pot - Austin Dickinson.
