Well, maybe I shouldn't say it's my seedling as it was given to me as a tiny little thing. I thought it would die. No babying from me since I wouldn't have known what to do to nurture it (at that time) anyways. But it grew up!

Earliest photos I have are from 2013.

in June

and then September

So early 2018 I decided that we needed to move this hosta out of its cramped quarters. You can see how difficult that might be as there wasn't much room! I slowly began to excavate the soil. I really wanted to let this hosta stretch out and grow to its potential.

    Good save on a seedling that could have gotten tossed. I like the size and the coloring of it. And the sport is intriguing, too. Also, nice placement in your garden. It is pretty enough to deserve to be more than a meter blocker. :-)

    It will be interesting to see what happens with the sport. It was one eye this year. Can't imagine separating it as the hosta is quite big now. But who knows if it will be there next year! Thanks everyone!

    It would be a shame not to separate it...

    Well, I'll see how the sport looks this year. I'll check the location of the eye in relation to the whole plant. If the sport looks promising, I'll post again to see what others think. I'll need to take more pictures!
