What type of Hosta is this?

Question by : What type of Hosta is this?
My mom has tons of Hostas. Just about every single color of them. She loves them. But, most recently, my dad accidentally killed one of the types that she only had one of with the tractor. Her birthday is coming up, and I’d like to buy another for her. The only problems are: A) I have no idea where to buy Hostas, and B) I don’t know what type it is.

So, does anyone know where I can buy Hostas and what type this is? Thanks much!

Sorry the picture isn’t the best quality. It was taken with my phone this afternoon. The leaves are dark green in the middle and light green-ish white on the edges.
Also: do you know how much this hosta might cost and where to buy it? Thank you!

    Go to HostasDirectInc. They have an excellent rating on Dave’s Garden Watchdog.

    If you aren’t familiar with Dave’s Garden, it’s a website for gardeners. Their Garden Watchdog segment is where users either praise or dish the dirt on mail order plant sites. If a site has a good rating, users have had success with them. You can check out any mail order garden site there.

    I have always bought my Hostas at the garden center or had friends give me starts so I can’t recommend a mail order site for you. Check with your local garden center to see if they have the variety of Hosta you need or find out if her friends grow them. If they do, I’ll bet they will be happy to give you a start. Or check for a local garden club. Gardeners love to share their extra plants 🙂
