Greetings all from zone 7 - (6 weeks till spring) - Maryland
A question regarding hosta's. 'She who must be obeyed' mentioned that she's
tired of the green and cream vaiaged hosta's that were adorning the walkway
for the past 10 years...(btw, I planted those myself, fed them, divided them
and developed my green thumb with them... there's a little proudness over here).

Where would be a good place to purchase these plants Mail order works for me,

It's 6 weeks till spring.....I need to get out and do something for the garden.

Not quite as big as the above, but large and lovely (BONUS! fragrant flowers):

Stained Glass (blue with chartreuse-to-gold variegation)
These last two are favorites of mine.
There is only a handful of plants I want to add, and you added one.
Of course, I have to wait and see how much shade is left now the December
ice storm took three big branches from over my hosta garden
