Gardening in mostly deep shade in Zone 6. My passion is adding more native plants to my landscape & clearing out the foreign invasives.

Tootsie added for scale. This plant is pretty sorry-looking. #interestingfoliage in a way...

If it doesn't get any bigger than this in 2023 I'm going to be really irritated...at least there's some #newgrowth

It dawns on me this sickly plant is multiplying. I see 3 bases instead of 1...

I'm now convinced that this sorry specimen is in fact "White Feather" -- I hope it someday looks better than this lol. It's about 2"-3" across and appears to have radiation sickness

This looks nothing like a hosta but it's in the place I planted this last year. And it is sort of whitish. Not a hot contender for the hosta challenge LOL

That is a pretty one. Saw it in the Breck’s catalogue. Good luck in the challenge 👍😍

@hkyfvr I am clueless about what the Hosta Challenge even is. Is it another one-day theme whereof I know nothing, or is it something more drawn out? My hostas are barely starting to emerge so are probably not competition-ready...

I am pretty clueless about it also. A few people in the UK must have done it last year and are doing it again. Someone said it is the biggest one that wins. I posted mine just sprouting and they suggested I enter. Mine are just sprouting also and another is coming in the mail this week. Will see how it goes but as of now I am not ready to enter. Might be fun though. 🤷‍♀️
