'Limey Lisa' is a fast growing small hosta which makes a very dense mound and blooms prolifically. Mine was divided in the spring this year and replanted in many individual eyes. The picture of it in bloom was taken last year before it was divided.

I love this little one. I got mine late in the season. It's in my cinderblock wall.

This one has grown enough in the last year that it forms a thick mat.

Ed - does yours still fit in that trough?

Mine is a solid mat of hosta ground cover. Picture July 16, 2014.

2016 update - winter 2015-16 started out cold with little snow. Then at several times during the season, it was mild and the snow left early as overall we didn't have much. This hosta suffered a lot from frost heave which surprised me because I've had it for a decade and it was last divided in 2011.
