I will throw in a third "L" hosta - Luna Moth. Just a really nice looking hosta.

Bought LM last year when I couldn't get 'Gemini Moon'. These pictures were taken on May 22 and June 18. It was left untouched by cutworms, slugs, earwigs all summer. I checked out ViolaAnn's 'Gemini Moon' and the two hostas do look a lot alike.

As an afterthought I checked out parentage. 'Luna Moth' is a sport of 'Parky's Prize' and 'Gemini Moon' is a sport of 'Abiqua Moonbeam' (source of info: Fransen Hostas).

RocknHostas, my LM definitely needs a rock! Nice touch. I can't remember seeing flowers on mine although I noted dry scapes on Sept. 2.

Still North of you, but like the color combination on your hosta.

Second year in our gardens, it was being strangled by Maple tree roots, so I moved it late in the season last year.

Love everyone's pictures of Luna Moth. I'm glad I bought it.

Thy, my LM is under a limbed up spruce tree, right at the outer edge of the planting bed, eastern exposure.
