Talking about Hosta (Hosta 'Dick Ward'), Paul2032 wrote:

When established, a mature clump of Hosta Dick Ward is a commanding presence in a shade garden. It makes a large clump. The color is nicely variegated and it changes and brighten as the season progresses. The leaves have good substance and are attractively corrugated. Deserving of a spot in a Hosta Garden.

Hosta Winter Snow is a sport of the classic Hosta Sum and Substance. I haven't seen all of the introduced sports, but Winter Snow is the best. Color is a nice Granny Smith Apple green with a creamy white margin. Leaves are shiny with prominent veins, broad and lightly ruffled. Plant is semi-upright and growth rate is good. Highly recommended.

Talking about Hosta (Hosta 'Fragrant Bouquet'), SCButtercup wrote:

These hosta leaves change color depending on how much sun they get. Grown in mostly shade, they have a bright, almost chartreuse color. They are not as vibrant in areas that get more sun, so save this for deeper shade and its color will really pop!

Talking about Hosta (Hosta plantaginea), pirl wrote:

When we moved here, there were very few plants, and only a peony and hosta plantaginea were of any real value. I split the two plants into more than 150! You can imagine the size of the original clumps.

It makes its spring debut at the same time the asparagus do -- early April. It's a lovely soft green color, but it's the blossoms in August that had it being called "August Lily" by many. It is the mother of all fragrant hostas, and the aroma drifting into the living room during the early August evenings earned it the spot it enjoys.

The stalks can be used in flower arrangements and they steal the scene...and the fragrance award.
