A newer variety (?), but purchased online, received a healthy albeit small plant, lived two years and never returned. Other hostas in my yard not only thrive but grow monstrous in my soil in a matter of a few years.

Zone 5, rich black compact soil with clay about 18" deep.

Too bad. Had high hopes for this one.
