I have heard that those hostas with "corrugated" leaves are less attractive to slugs. Anyone else heard this? Opinions? (Very few slugs/slug problems here, for some reason...).

Zem - I've never planted hostas before. In Texas, they're called slug

problems. So I can risk it now. The blue ones are just GORGEOUS, I've
always wanted one. I will check out Plant Delights - thanks!
