I bought this plant in May 2015, when it was in it's white /blue green stage.Planted on west side of garage in a large heavily mulched bed with filtered morning sun. This year the new shoots have tripled & I got to see it's gold coloration of spring. I use a liquid fish emulsion fertilizer, mixed with water(5-1-1) on all my hostas(no burn). I can see it reaching 15x20" or more in 3 or 4 years. The is a smaller, thinner version of June, but with longer leaves. They both have the same medium growth rate. I also used bone meal & organic compost/ & manure when planting to encourage vigorous root development.

Remember Me is a small bright Hosta that never fails to surprise me with its great colour and habit. It gets a small amount of morning sun and a bit more in the afternoon. This Hosta holds its own in terms of presence beside much larger Hostas. Love it.

I have found this to be extremely slow growing. Although my leaves remain a beautiful golden color, within the two years I have it, it went from three leaves the first season to five leaves the second season.

So far, not a fast grower, but I like it. Was new in 2006 and was white when I received it; so the bright yellow colour of the emerging leaves surprised me this year, but they have become white during the season. Mine gets morning sun. I like the contrast of the yellow colour of new emerging leaves with the older white ones.

This hosta started out very nice and white in 2006 when I planted it, but this year it is very yellowish-green. In full shade all day, maybe it needs sun to be white? I still really like it and think it is a beautiful variety, though.
