I don't have it, Rita, but was wondering if you saw it on the tv show today - Paul James the Gardener Guy?

If so, weren't the gardens just gorgeous!
And I've never seen so many beautiful blue flowers in one location before! I was drooling over everything there!

I have a green one that has white flowers but it doesn't seem to be fragrant. I'll check it out for you. I don't have it's name it was in a bag of mixed hosta bulbs.

Sorry I do not have one...I think you are talking about Diana Remembered. There are many fragrant hostas now. I love the fragrant ones. If you cannot find Diana try....
So Sweet
Fragrant Bouquet
Plantigina
Fried Banana
There are a lot they smell like Gardenias and bloom in the fall when we need flowers so bad in cold areas.

I would do postage next year. I am done digging everything except tropicals now that I will be sending out next week.

They are all the size of medium hostas, which is about 4' x 4' including the flower. The fragance is strong enough that walking past them you will smell them and in the evening the fragrance can be as far away as 5' or more.
