On my short list this year. What a beauty!

And frosts are slain and flowers begotten.....

Gorgeous indeed. Giving me giant envy - I have space for very few really large hostas.

A really great sport from Niagara Falls. I got it in the middle of last season from Chris.

Bridal Falls with late season coloration. That's Seducer in the top/left corner.

You won't know how to grow a plant successfully until you've killed it a few times.

Ludi,

Great looking 'Bridal Falls'!

I picked one up in 2013 but have no photos of it. If mine was as big as yours, I know I would have taken a photo.

Thanks Cowboy ! I do so love her. ♥

I remember it was very late 2012, someone on GW had posted a pic of their three year old TC. It only had three leaves, but I knew then that she was destined to be in my garden, and on my top 5 favorite list. I also ordered mine in 2013 ... think that was the first year for it to hit the retail market.

Here are some other pictures to put her in perspective. All taken same day as the one above.

Thanks,
Ludi :D
