Could someone assist me with the lineup of the bedding plants in this shade garden?

Starting from the bottom left is a Hosta, then that speckled Coleus. What's the dark green striped plant next to the speckled Coleus? And, it's all bordered by Impatiens, yes? Can you tell me which kind of Hosta that is, and if gets taller than 2 feet? I need one that only grows to 2' maybe 2.5' at most.

Thanks for any assistance.

Linda

the hosta may be the cultivar Zager, White Edge

But there are a number of variegated hostas similar

1- Caladium
2- Impatiens
3- Coleus
4- ? Is this the one you're asking about? I'd like to know too.

There are thousands of Hostas, just read the tag when shopping for the height of each. The mini/teacup Hostas might work well for you. A little group of them is so cute!

You are most welcome Linda. How did the niece's landscaping turn out? Y'all were planning it a couple years ago.

Some kind of Begonia is all all I can come up with, coming back for a 2nd look.
