For any of you who are interested....Today, JUNE 3, 2011, I just bought "Color Glory" and "Karin" at our local Wal-mart on a half price sale for $2.98! They were in peat moss and bags, but , knowing how indestructible hosta is, I thought I'd take a chance as "Color Glory" is beautiful and expensive!
