Hola, I have planted this 'Glad Rags' poorly and moved it several times and given it too much sun heat, but now I think it is feeling at home. Although a new shoot that was attempting to grow last year didn't make it. But this Hosta seems to be feeling healthy and is feeling her oats. Thankfully. Xuling PS I am shooting the pic looking down and that thing in the middle is the flower stalk growing upwards.

Wow, that is a gorgeous hosta that just pops. Finally, what is the answer to growing this one right?

I think I need one of those. But how large does it get? Might have to remove something else.

I think that this is about the size of a single plant. Apparantly when a bunch are grouped together they are an amazing sight. But I cannot get mine to send out another bud (whatever they are callled.) or lat least one that survives. So do not know what I am doing wrong. But it is gorgeous. Xuling
