HOSTA HELP!

I have several hostas that I have received over the years from people downsizing their gardens. I do not know the names and am having a hard time identifying them. Does anyone have any suggestions as to a good website with a vast catalogue of hostas with names?? Thank you in advance!

    I think we may have a winner! I am so glad I found this site..... I have saved seeds from this one and may see what I get from her...

    the seeds MIGHT give you something lovely, but don't hold your breath.

    Yes a few years back I planted 80 seeds, got 50, 5 were variegated of sorts and the rest are lovely deep green filler hostas...

    I don't bother with seeds. I'd rather spent the money on a new plant than time on compost / watering and waiting

    This is true.... I did it once and succeeded now on to bigger and better things!
