Growing season to date 6-6-13

Some of the nicer plants from this year so far, 6-6-13

A question for the hosta people, do you see a lot of self sown seedlings?
I ask because I'm seeing a lot of seedlings that weren't planted by me, and I'm wondering if they tend to do that.

Hosta Thunderbolt is my favorite, but for pure beauty, "Touch of Class" #1, "June" #2, are the cats meow

My hostas make seedings but if I don't move them to their own spot they parish during summer when they don't get enough water. Is it true that money grows on hosta or more likely hosta takes takes the money away. Nice way of showing the leaf size.

Thanks for the reply about the seedlings, I have several that are over 3 years old and starting to show some size "nothing fancy"
I use the money comparison because I feel that's the easiest way to show size of leaf

Thanks Ogrefcf
I bought it as Angel Eyes about 5 years ago, I don't know if the Guardian Angel debate between the two ever got settled
I love this one no matter what the name
