I ordered that last summer from Hallson's and it looked great. It is probably the hosta I am most looking forward to seeing this year. I need to think about a primo spot to move it to, though.

I just had to go out and check mine- it's one of the slowest ones to come up, I'm noticing. I counted four eyes.. Woohoo!

I can't believe you guys are still getting snow- my sincere condolences!

Beth, that is just a beautiful sight. I've enjoyed all of your pics today, but for some reason this hosta just does it for me. I can't wait to see mine, but I"m kinda glad that it's not up yet (or at least it wasn't the last time I looked.)
Thanks for the spring preview!

Okay okay!! Now I have to have 2 Queens! Dancing Queen and Queen of the Sea! I think I have DQ,but the tag is gone and it is still small but I am not sure We have been having rain every day off and on and we are getting caught up on our rain, which is good but it has been 'too wet to plow'. and everyone is getting behind on their outside work. But on the plus side, we are not on fire like part of California is. It seems like the weather has just been going nuts lately!!!
