Lovely hostas Jurgita, a really nice present.  Hope they do well for you.

Peter I think (stand to be corrected) that Halycon is blue . Lovely present Jurga and great for dividing

Mary is right, Halycon is very blue.  Very nice present Jurgita -- be careful though they might become a bit of an obsession  lol

They look great. Agree definitely not Halcyon. Get the beer out for the slugs.

dont let the slugs get them, they are beauties, just google them, i have them but the name is long gone, you will get a few plants out of that bunch

Lovely present, Jurga. Enjoy them before the slugs do. :)

Great looking plants, well done Clare.

Hoeys Hoeys 21 April 2012 09:57:59

thank you.. well Hosta i think i got the addiction... i am trying to fight with all the slugs using ducks, coffee grounds and birds.

Thats great Jurgita lucky you.  This is what seems to happen in my garden has anyone else had the experience?  When I plant something like Hostas in a wet area the slugs don't bother with them much as there's plenty moisture around.  When I plant them somewhere a bit dryer and sunnier they are nibbled as they are the most succulent thing around?

Good luck with them Jurgita and so sorry I do not have a name for them.... hope the ducks and coffee do the trick,  enjoy!.

A lovely present to get Jurgita.  I've  got one that  looks similar, its   'Undulata Albomarginata'.     Hosta is so right about them becoming an obsession.
