This hosta, planted by the previous owner of our place, always reminds me of guacamole.
I was going to say “I have no idea of the variety, sorry” but then I thought to look under all those leaves for a tag, and wonder of wonders, there it was. I’m sure it was exposed every winter when the plant went dormant but I’d never thought to check before. It’s ‘Royal Splendor’ and I’d say it’s living up to its name these days.
Alas, it’s planted in a very small space, wedged in between our porch steps, gutter downspout and a cement walkway. It always seemed to fit there before but now it’s getting a little crowded. Anybody have success with moving 5+-year-old hostas before? If so, any advice on the best time of year to transplant it? Or can they be divided easily in the fall? I’d like to have it in other spaces in the garden but leave a chunk there if I can manage that without killing it.
