Pic of the Day--Yellow Splash Rim

Hi All--Average. In trying to decide what to say about Yellow Splash Rim, I can't get the word "average" out of my head. Since being added to our garden in 2002 there hasn't been much wrong, or exceptional, about the plant. It even gets an average amount of sun, about 3 hours or so. It has had a good growth rate, with measurements of 13x5, 24x14, 36x16, 42x18, 46x19 and 45x18. But even there it is like so many other varieties in that it surpasses the registration size, 32x16. And, as another variety with green coloring and a white edge, it has trouble with the 10 feet rule. Even slugs have a normal interest.

Thanks for the pics and the info Hank. :D

I received YSR in the Spring secret trade this year from Reldon. I think I'm going to like it very much.

In my garden, YSR is the very first hosta to come up in the spring. I really like it.
