hosta at the garden center

I promised you a pix of this hosta, must be at least 5 feet in diameter. Not at it's best, because of the heat. I had the name but have forgotten it starts with an S. well know hosta name. Can't wait for mine to get this big.

Such nice plants I.....

They are not all that cheap compared to the 'box stores', but they have STUFF that no one else does, and they tend their plants carefully. They do need some dressup work in the plant yard. It always looks a tad run down, but then I go there for the plants, not for the pathways. Although a smoother path might make me want to wander about even further!

I must remember to pop over there in time to catch it at it's best- early summer. Maybe take some more hosta pix for you. If I had the room, I would have one of each one there! Not enough shade for that! luckily for Dan!

And the snails really love them, but it gives my chooks a good snack when I find any...:o)))

Slugs here, for some reason I don't seem to have that problem. Might be the tanbark mulch, too rough for them to slime over! Accidential bonus with that stuff!
