Apparently it doesn't take much to make me happy.
I visited a friend with a very large hosta garden this summer and fell
for a plant called 'Emerald Necklace'. Naturally I whined until I
got some of the plant, which by itself made the 8 hour round trip drive
worthwhile. I got a lot of other good stuff too, but I really liked
this plant. It's fairly small, with a darker green edge showing
a lot of puckering and a smooth lighter green center. Not nearly
as dramatic as 'Embroidery', but to me, the subtle contrast of textures
in the leaf was beautiful. It wasn't until I got home that I found
out that the plant is viridescent and the light green center is actually
white in the spring.
Since I can't attach pictures here, I put one on our web site.

Which of the newer introductions you've obtained in the last few years
do you consider worth their going price and why?
