I didn't get any shots of Cherish this season - here is one from a couple of years ago.

My 'Cherish' is still struggling, but still going.

Here's my Cherish, I bought this one from Hosta Liners this spring (2012). I was amazed to see how much it's grown. It's sat in this pot in the back of the garden in mostly shade all summer, totally ignored.

Yours has quite a lot more green than mine does. I bet that would make it grow faster. maybe I should try this one again if I can find it anywhere. Yours looks great.

So nice to see the successful ones above. In 2014, I still have 'Cherish', but it's not getting any bigger and I think some year it will just disappear.

Mine is doing better. I put it in a large washtub with a few other mini hosta. Even forgot to bring it into the basement for winter. And you all know how nasty this winter was. Will have to go out and get a pic of it sometime inbetween canning spaghetti sauce. lol So it might take a few days. :wink:

2015 - Aug 13. This one was potted along with other members of the family and it seems to be doing better. Still not very big though.

2016 update - still struggling. I'm always surprised when this one comes back in the spring. I think some year it will just disappear. Photo July 7.
