Me, too. I'm not a hosta fan, but Royal Standard earns a place in my garden.
The scent is wonderful in mid-late summer. I have also gotten fond of "Sum
and Substance." It's *huge* and a beautiful chartreuse color. Slugs, etc.
are supposed to find it distasteful for some reason.

doesn't think much of hostas.)
