On to the letter "T".
My first one is 'Tears of Joy' which is my second tiniest. Acquired July 2010, this was so slow to emerge this year that I thought I'd lost it. This picture from July 18.
Let's see YOUR pictures of hostas beginning with "T"
'Twisting the Night Away' was a gift from a Vancouver area hosta friend in August. It's his own sport of 'Fortunei Hyacynthina'. If you go to http://www.pwk.resteddoginn.ca/hosta_hya_sprt3.php and scroll down to division #8, mine comes from that division.
That covers MY "T" hostas. Now let's see and hear about yours.

Tiny Tears, my tiniest hosta. It hasn't been babied since I got it last summer other than having a wire cage placed above it as bunny and squirrel protection. This one would probably do better in a pot, but I'm trying it in the ground first. Sorry the pic is a bit blurry. Taken August 12.
Edited for grammar =)

'Tick Tock' was not the subject of this picture. It was 'Nancy' top right, which I love. 'Tick Tock' is in its second year on the bottom right. It's the only early summer picture I have.
And I forgot to post the picture.

'Tokudama Aureonebulosa' which I acquired in 2003 and moved about 3 years ago into brighter light. A real slow grower, but this year it hasn't looked really happy and the leaves have mostly gone brown already. I'm going to dig it up to see if I have root competition or something going on. This picture from June 20.
'Touch of Class' was new spring 2004. This plant was divided once before I knew about patented plants and last year a section turned solid blue (Chris from Hallson's says I can call it 'Bulletproof'). this year, I dropped a spade on it early in the season and it affected how lovely the mound looks this year. :-( This picture from July 8 and it still looks good late in the season.
'Tom Schmid' purchased from Hallson Gardens in June/ 2011. This Hosta was put in the ground right away and he loved it. He also puts up with some sun and neglect, no pouting at all from this guy. Also the slugs have not touched it, knock on wood. I fell in love with this Hosta when I saw it in Noreaster's garden, she actually had two of them together and I really loved it, Its very upright.
Rose1656 - you you have pine trees? I envy you your mulch. I Like 'Tropical Storm', especially.
I have some pine trees, but the needles come from some friend's yards. Free mulch if we help rake it up! Can't beat that...
Awesome Hosta!! SMH, I almost bought one but they were out. It's even more beautiful than I thought and I will try again. Where did you get yours?
I looked up 'Titanic' in my journal, and it said that I don't know where or when I bought it! I split mine this spring for a friend, but they found one the fall before. Remind me next spring, and for postage you can have the division.
I have three Titanics and really do like them. I had to remove a large division on one this fall. The reversion is of course Sum and Substance. Titanic is patented.
