I love it!! Are they on sale anywhere. I would place it near the pond potted.

I just googled and there are few nurseries selling them. I think it is better to buy now rather than spring.

Hi bellieg, I saw it on 'Country Boys' But its not available there till spring. What nurseries are selling them now? I just bought 20 more so I have enough right now to keep me busy. Hostas Direct was have a Fall Blow-out Sale and they had their mature divisions on clearance because they will not carry them any more. I got about 8 of them huge things and they were 3.95 apiece, then I got a few other things I have been wanting but they are small.

This is another one for my 2012 list and its a beauty! Adrian's Glory

Medium. A sport of 'Gold Standard' with blue-green heart-shaped leaves with chartreuse centers. The leaves have a heavy substance, suggesting it might be a tetraploid. The center brightens as the season progresses. The contrast increases with morning sun or bright shade.

- Approximate height - 20"
- Approximate spread - 36"
- Flower - Lavender

This is on sale at 'Bridgewood Gardens', I forgot all about them but found them in my bookmarks. They are having a pretty good sale too!!
