Let's all post pics of our hostas from this year. I propose starting a new letter each day. Today we start with the letter "A".
Here's "Allegan Fog' on June 28. This plant was new in 2006 and was divided this past spring.

Let's see YOUR pictures of hostas beginning with "A"!
'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.

Wow, your 'Alex Summers' looks gorgeous, Ann! I hope mine turns out as pretty. Hail pretty much shredded it in May and it's still looking pretty sad.
Kayly - the 'Alex Summers' belongs to Rose. I'm afraid I don't have him, but I might need to get him.
Oops! I missed that, Ann. I was scrolling down your string of beauties and just assumed 'Alex Summers' was yours. :)
The sentiment is the same, though--very pretty, Rose!
Eleven, is that a green edge on your 'August Moon'? Mine is all yellow. Why not try it in another spot before you give up on it.
Frank, I really like the Atlantis, Seems to have a nice upright form. How much sun does it get?
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.
I'm adding 'Autumn Frost' to my gotta have list! Have to look for it next spring.
