Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Just sharing a picture. Everyone who comes in my yard is always asking me which hosta this is because it's pretty big. Have to say that my Pineapple Upside Down Cake is very prolific.

Very nice. We finally found a site where ours seems to prosper. It needs a good amount of sun.

I think that's why it does so well. It's in full afternoon sun. I never realized it could get as large as it did. If you have any pics, would love to see them. :D

Mine got thrown on the burn pile. Looked suspicious last year and didn't look any better this year. So better safe than sorry. Its gone.

Thanks Ann, sorry I didn't look there first. I'll remember that next time. It's such a wonderful idea to be able to find a variety of pics from different sources. Thanks again! :D
