Hosta - Frances Williams (aka The Thug!)

Hosta - Frances Williams (aka The Thug!) (Hosta)

This photo was taken in 2006. It got even larger by 2008 and we simply had to divide it. I hope it does well this year. I simply love Hostas. I believe it is a Frances Williams.

They are great plants, if a bit enthusiastic at times. But they can create a great background for flowering plants as well as being a great plant in their own right. Mine(mostly in pots as it's easier to keep the slus and snails off) are growing through brilliantly at the moment.

It looks great! I'm putting in my first this year. Now that I feel more brave about the kind of light I get at this property.

Thanks for your comments. I don't normally get problems with slugs but last year I did, perhaps because it was a particularly wet summer, who knows. I'm glad I divided it though as it was getting too large. I now have 3 lovely plant popping there lovely leaves up at the moment.
