You have an incredibly good Hosta collection. They all look so healthy and slug free. Well done. Also I'm amazed that you say some have leaves in winter. Our's do not grow back till April/May. How cold does it get in Ohio?

Hi Chrispook, You must have misunderstood me or you have me confused with someone else because once frost hits the hostas in the fall they're done for the winter, here in Ohio. They all die completely back until some time in March when I start to see new growth on some. The coldest it's gotten here in the past 14 years was -13F.........13 degrees below zero. I don't have my conversion chart handy to tell you what that is in centigrade. I'm sorry for the confusion. Anyway thanks for the nice comment. I have collect over 200 different varieties in the past 8 years and I'm still adding a few each year. Some people thing they're just too plain for the garden but I love the different colors and textures. Others cut the flower stalks off thinking they're ugly but I let mine bloom because the hummers love them !
