GE thread: RE: new introductions

I've bought about a half dozen GE's this year.  All tend to be more off
type than true GE, except the one I bought on accident...   A couple
look as if they might be streaked versions, some have varying degrees of
brightness in the center coloration and another has a tight center
giving it the look of Dream Weaver/Thurnderbolt/Dream Queen.   

I have not had the luck I'd like to see with growing this one but it's
one I won't stop trying.  I'm considering the planted pot method with a
few and see if I get lucky.

Great Expectations like I have seen in pictures but I know it is not to
be in
my growing conditions...I think we just have to live with that fact and
to upset if a hosta dies now and then..it happens.

Great Expectations was one of the first hostas that I was able to find
when I 
started buying hostas.  I bought it every time I found it and planted
and forgot about them.  Six years later they are all beautiful.
Patience is the 
secret with GE.  One can never have too many Great Expectations!
