    A couple of new additions in 2010

    Adorable - a medium sized sport of Royal Standard (this one from Denny - aahostas).

    Alex Summers - a medium/large sport of Gold Regal named after the founder of the American Hosta Society. Mine is in a fairly shady location, though MyHostas database states the margin gets more yellow/gold with half day sun.

    These 'A' pictures were all taken in early/mid May. Two and a half to three months away. Can I last? I guess I have to.
