Thanks @sunlovin it is a nice hosta with good colour. It's gets an hour of sun in the morning. The older leaves are starting to fade now

I consider myself lucky coming across this last year in a garden centre, it was the last one. Even from a distance amongst other hosts it really stood out. I had made up my mind it was coming home with me before I got close to it 😅 @ShelleySnyder @lesliecole49

They're looking marvellous Al. I can only dream of growing them here in my slug & snail hell!

They were looking good. The slimey gits are doing damage to a lot of plants, hostas, Dahilas, lupin, canna but the hardest hit have been the seedlings, enough to make a man cry @jeatacake

I feel your pain. They're little Devils in my greenhouse too eating delicate seedlings. I have found a new deterrent though - sprinkling cinnamon onto the seedlings. Seems they don't like it & keep away. No good outside though!

Cinnamon! Thanks for that Jeff, I'll try that and be a bit more prepared for next year.

I have this one too, but I’ve never seen it with that intensity of color. In spring, mine comes up with a touch of orange 🌞

Funny you should say that, I've noticed it's lost some of its intensity. I was wondering why it had orange in the name. Is it nice with a touch of orange in it. Have you posted any pictures of it with the orange showing. Tks @sunlovin

I haven’t posted any pictures of Orange Marmalade, I’ll have to wait till next spring, when it has an orange tint 😊🌞
