This is Pat. She's the brains of the operation and my partner in our gardening adventure. She's also the real gardener in the family. She actually knows plant names while I still use terms like the red one, the yellow one, or possibly my favorite, it looks like a sunflower, just smaller and a different color. You get the idea. I know she didn't think there was a hidden gardener inside the guy she married. Heck, I didn't either. All this background makes the idea that one day I would be the proud gardener of somewhere around 500 hosta all the more funny. I guess saying I like hosta is sort of an understatement.
The Columbus Garden Show displayed a lot of hosta, more than all the other shows we have seen put together. I even found some hosta I have places for in our yard, because as we all know, there is always room for just one or two or three more of that favorite plant.
