Slowwww grower! I planted this in 2009. It had 3 leaves then, 3 leaves in 2011, and still 3 leaves now! NO bigger in any aspect so far! It would be a gorgeous hosta if you don't mind the waiting and waiting and waiting... I've now tried to move it for the first time since planting to see if it was planted too deep, too much sun, etc... We'll see how this goes, but so far I'm not impressed.
