'Ani Machi' (often erroneously called 'Geisha') in late June. This plant was new spring 2006 but was divided and shared this past spring. The remainder was replanted in 3 groups and it already looks nearly as full as it did before.
'Aristocrat' on June 9 before it got sunburned. We had a lot of rain in May and when it became hot and sunny in June, the sun was intensified by the white aluminum siding on my house and also the neighbour's house which is only about 10' away and all the plants on the east side of my house fried. Normally they do well in this location, but normally we have more sun in May. This plant was acquired spring 2004.
Antioch. This one doesn't really excite me (I bought it in the beginning because it was inexpensive), but it's starting to look good. Will probably relocate it next year to a landscape planting rather than one of my hosta beds.
irawon, I never noticed the green edge on August Moon before, but it's also visible in previous pics from this year. Here it is last year, and the faint green is still visible. I will probably just relocate this one to a mixed perennial bed when I redo this bed and give the other hostas some growing room.
