Name: H. 'Christmas Pageant'

Mine got off to a rough start with damage to the crown early in the second season in which I had it. I also had it in a location which was too dark for awhile. It's been moved around and finally, in its 4th season began to look pretty good, though still small.

'Christmas Pageant' has seen quite a bit of growth over the last year.

It is a very nice hosta and as you said a rather good grower too.
It is a hosta Mike - Hallsonite , found some years ago.
Mine got eaten up by KiwiFull Monthy, Azure Snow and Cho Cho Train... didn't survive my resque :lol:

Moved this one in 2011, it has come on nicely since then - pic below is about 5-6 wks ago and it has added even more leaves on second flush since then.

I just moved mine this afternoon, along with about a dozen others. I think it will look better in the new location and I hope it will continue to grow well.

2014 pic. The growth has been good, but not dramatic.

2015 - July 3. Until I looked at last year's picture, I thought this one had grown a lot. The pics tell a different story. I is doing quite well though.
