Currently we are not set up with pictures for each hosta. We hope to add that soon. By going to HostaLibrary.org you can find pictures for nearly all of these. They often show both young and mature plants in various sunlight conditions.

(tc) indicates a 1st year tissue culture plant, newly ordered this spring.  These will usually pot up  in 3" or 4" pots.

A sport of 'Maui Buttercups', which is one of the best small to medium gold hostas there is. This has bright gold leaves, cupped and puckered, with a dark green margin. Medium violet flowers. This sport is supposedly much more vigorous than the parent, but I find it to still be a slow grower.
