Ghostmaster, an introduction of Danny.
In the shade, the centre stays white, but this one got a lot of sun so it get's misted...

Li'l Abner
This plant has an amazing golden-brassy margin. To top it all, there is a second lining within...

Image


Lakeside 'Zinger'
This one is showing very nice 'grass clippings', a nice small hosta...

The difference is copper margin on Li'l Abner. It's a 2nd year plant, wasn't too good early this year but the second flush made up for it :bd:

Sugar - like that LS Zinger. I am becoming interested in small and dwarf hosta, will have to look up it's size. I got Li'l Abner this year from Chris as a bonus hosta. A very nice addition to my hosta collection.

I love the streaked Halcyon and Ghostmaster looks interesting too. I saw it in a Dutch catalog recently, but won't risk importing them :(

I got second year Lakeside Zinger tc this year and the lot was very variable. I got some all white with green speckles - I suspect they won't be around next spring... and lots of variety in the margins and spotting. Like Chicadee-Dixie Chick, I think it will probably be a sporting around type mini.

OK, 3 more...

Hosta Niko. Not quite as spectacular as the pictures on hostalibrary, but a great plant altogether
Image

Hosta 'Yellow polka Dot Bikini'. The difference with Hanky Panky is not that big, but I love it
Image

Hosta 'moonlight' This last one is a very common one, one of my favourites. This are '2nd flush' leaves, so will probably go even further yellow over the next two weeks...

With your 'Yellow polka Dot Bikini', are the yellower leaves in the centre just that colour because they are newer growth that will turn darker green in time? Some very nice Hostas there. I've also enjoyed the variance of colour in my LS Zinger.

Yes

The young leaves are not that much different from Hanky Panky. The older leaves (darker ones) are different though

One more I think I haven't showed yet...

Hosta 'Breeders Love'
Image

This is a streaked Love Pat, an introduction of Jan Van den Top. It's an amazing plant, with superb blue/yellow streaking, and for the rest, the same qualities as Love Pat. This is the kind of streakers I like :beer:
My plant is still young, but I got to see an older plant at Jan's nursery and it is simply stunning
