    Back right looks like Praying Hands, there are so many different Hostas it's difficult to ID them.

    Big centre looks like Wide Brim but I only know that because I grow it

    And so many are differentiated only by the flower or growth habit - I would have thought it impossible to identify accurately from just one photo like that.

    I'm with Mark on praying hands, but wouldn't like to risk a definitive ID  on others.

    Aha!  I think we can fairly safely assume that one of them is Queen Josephine  (centre back) and another El-Nino (back left)  - and you're probably right about Praying Hands image

    Put cold tea on mine and they seem ok (grown in pots) planted Queen Josephine, El-Nino and Praying hands last year and all made me smile ???? can't wait til they start popping through

    It's easier when you find the clues image

    Why do cultivars that look the same get sold? image Let alone get awarded an rhs seal of approval?

    There will be a difference of some sort. image

    Tray 14, your hostas make a lovely little display.   (The photo turns the right way round when I click on it.)   I do like the little lights to show them off at night.

    Pansy face - thank you - Mark 499 yes it is Praying hands - got it last year and coming through beautifully - - Dove - back left is El-Nino (love it) and great detective work! - front right is Queen Josephine (got it for my Mom ) Oneofseven - thank you for your kind comments. ????

     It didn't turn the right way round when I clicked, so I've turned it, hope it stays turned when I post it. Healthy looking plants.
