Help with Hosta ID Please

Dublin, OH

I moved this last fall and the tag apparently didn't get the relocation notice. Anyhow, the plant is about 30-36" wide and about 18" height. Leaves are corrugated, 15 viens and about 80 square inches. Thanks for the help!

My first thought was Paradigm, but I'm not even close to being an expert.

Hope you figure it out. I have a number of hostas I haven't been able to identify yet and it's driving me crazy ... like OCD crazy! All my hostas must have their plant markers! :)

The size and vein count do line up with Paradigm. It was hosta of the year in 2007, if that helps jog your memory on purchasing it! Here's a pic of mine from last year, and I can see similarities with your plant.

Your Paradigm is gorgeous, Eleven! I definitely need to get one of these!

Don't mean to hijack the thread but I've got a couple too. Both blues, but the first one is a very frosty blue. Probably the bluest hosta I have.
The third one I *think* is T-Rex???

No problem, Love the T-Rex. Seems like someone on another thread was asking about one. Check-out 'My Giants' I think LeawoodGardener has one. :)

I know for sure it's either T-Rex or Big Daddy. It's not real blue, so that's why I'm leaning towards Rex.

Here's a pic of the whole bed. The only thing in it that is not a hosta is a couple of Ostrich Ferns to fill in the space close to the trunk of the maple tree.

Postmandug, I posted a pic a couple of days ago asking if anyone thought it was a T-Rex. I've seen a couple of pictures of them and mine looks like it could be a match. No one positively ID'd it. Take a look and see. if it looks similar to yours - the post has a subject of "T-Rex?"

That's really beautiful Doug. Others will be along, if nothing else you will get a positive ID when it blooms, just post new pictures at that time. :)

I googled it and came up with this, so yes I do think it looks like T-Rex!

Big Daddy looks more rounded and corrugated.

What do you think? Does that help?
