    I'm sure Droopy would be able to name your hosta for you as she has many varities of her own. Why not PM her and see if she can help you to ID it?

    Hi ya

    Well I plug "Guacamole" in Google Image and not to sureif thats it? I now know I do have some. Came across some "Royal Standard" pics that look close.
    I'll give it more time to flower and see if it changes colour ..
    Thanks!

    Nice hosta! :D I don't know what it is, since I'm really no good ID-ing hostas we haven't got. I'm hoping the variegations will show better later, and the flower colour might help too.
