Hosta, Hosta, and More Hosta. Part 2

There are pictures of ferns and lagularia mixed in with the hosta pictures. As with all plants, I can't tell you their names. I tried early on to learn the names of all the hosta plants we have. I gave up when I came across a hosta plant named Captain Kirk in a catalogue. I mean for crying out loud, those people have infiltrated the calm and peace of gardening. I wonder if they bring hosta plants to their conventions? I know who to ask, but I probably never will. So now I describe hosta by how the leaf looks. You got your small, medium, large, and extra-large hosta. They come in different shades of green and some have edging or strips in different shades of green. The blues, yellows, and whites are really shades of green.
