The two pictures that are posted to this site look nothing alike. Are they both truly 'Flash of Light'? The one I have somewhat resembles the "gretaduck" pic. but my leaves are smaller. But my plant is also very small and is not growing much. It only had two leaves on it the first of May and it only has 4 now the last of June. I admit, I'm confused.

Beautiful hosta with wonderful variegation. The contrast between the light and dark is a show-stopper in the shade bed.
