Blue Ivory & Captain Kirk

Hosta Blue Ivory and Captain Kirk. With unknown variety.

Blue Ivory, which I really like, is left centre. Captain Kirk is centre top. He was out front but had to move him because he couldn't take the amount of sun he was getting. I may also have to move Designer Genes as she appears to be unhappy with the amount of sun she gets in the summer. The little blue guy centre front is a piece of the little guy from out front (oldest hosta bed).
