I've been having some problems uploading to the site lately, but wanted to keep trying since you asked about 'Remember Me'. This is a standout Hosta so plant it where you want the attention. It shows new growth later in the Spring than others, so I remind myself to be patient - it will come back!
I have 2 - this pic is of the one in deep shade.
I have 'Remember Me' on my list just about every year, and then I end up not getting it. This year I'll hopefully remember (pun intended!) to get it. I can always make space for a pretty little hosta, and 'Remember Me' sure is pretty.
How much sun does it get? Mine is about 8 feet behind an oak tree, but just west of my neighbour's driveway and yard - no trees to the east; so it gets good morning sun.
Wow! Thank you for the information, this is such a beautiful Hosta! I did purchase one from 'www.ILoveHostas.net'. They have a buy now, pay later plan. I don't have to pay till April 21. They are nice company, I also got some Heuchera and a coneflower. :)
I will let you know about the size when I get it.
virginiarose - Hallson's does the same thing, although they don't really advertise it much--you don't pay until your order ships. (I think now Chris also has a thing where if you choose to pay right away you get a discount, but you don't have to.) Ordering from Hallson's has made me a very loyal fan. I'll have to check out ILoveHostas.net. Have you received plants from them? How big were they?
It is very showy. I need hostas that can take more sun, now that I have lost a big shade tree.
How is it for slug resistance?
I have some beautiful hostas, but many are slug bait and are so ugly later in the season. I am vowing to start my slug watch early this year with every weapon I can.
KaylyRed,I see that Hallson's did not cash the check yet. That is nice. I have not gotten my plants from Ilovehostas.net, I haven't even paid. They told me to pay them by 04-21-12 and they would start shipping to my area 05-21-12. I will keep you posted!
Ann, that sure is a beautiful hosta. Do you have anything else that is slug resistant. I have bought a few hostas that say they are slug resistant, but I don't really know. Seems like they list it that way if it has thick substance. Have you or anyone found that to be true. I would not mind have three or four of these.
I just ordered three Fire and Ice from a coop on ATP under co-ops and group buys,( Order thread for T and T Nursery 2.25 Hosta) if you want to get in on this please mention my name so I can get a free hosta. I bought 5 hostas, with shipping is under 19.00 :)
PS the other two I got are both Sagae! I really just love the way they look!
To avoid hi-jacking the thread, I'll start a new one of slug-resistant hostas. you'll find it at: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1240780/
virginiarose, you're going to have a collection that is the envy of most of us within just a year or two. I know you've already left me in the dust. lol
LOL KaylyRed, thanks. :)
Ann, thank you for the special link! :)
The one in sun gets about 4.5 hours morning sun. The one in shade gets about 15 minutes (no joke!) since the neighbours extended their back deck 2 years ago. I'm amazed with the tolerance of the plants in my "shade garden".
Slugs and Snails ... I use Safer's Slug and Snail Bait. If I put it down in Spring when the Hostas are just starting to emerge, after a rainfall and following the directions - it works wonders.
I'm looking forward to my two 'Remember Me' emerging this spring. I bought them last year and planted them in different locations. a5footsea how mature are your plants; they are beauties. So you've had yours for 5 years ViolaAnn; it sure is a slow grower but appears to be really thriving in your site.

Irene - I have to come see your garden this year.
Re 'Remember Me', when I got it, the leaves were already creamy in the centres. I recall being stunned when it emerged the next spring with bright yellow-centred leaves.
ViolaAnn ,May's the best time to come for a visit. I'll dmail you my phone number. I'd like to see your garden again as well.
