Here's a group shot with Harpoon front and center. This is one hosta that gets some size to it, and I like
it a lot.

Harpoon in a tsunami of clausa normalis 'Jilin'. There's also some red cardinal flower weedlings to the right. Still working on cleaning this space - I feel two months behind. There is also a remnant of an azalea in there - Encore Autumn Embers - still trying to come back from the brutal winter of 2014 - this is the north edge of this particular one's range.
