Hosta

HOSTA If not overdone Hostas can present a spectacular accent in a shady garden, Poorly laid out and overdone with prominent labeling they can be hideous, We have tried to offer a sampling of the range of foliage types available, focusing mostly on classic plants along with some moderately priced newer introductions. We have attempted to select the best in each category, . It was a daunting task to narrow the list of available and moderately priced plants to just the very best, we think we did a good job. Be wary when price shopping as you may receive a tiny plant barely out of the tissue culture tube, ours are all large divisions and many have multiple eyes.____ZONE 4

Hosta 'Queen Josephine'

Hosta 'Queen Josephine'

Craig Masching made us add this one so it must be choice but for the life of me, I can't remember what the damn thing looks like. Look it up yourself, I have Hosta burnout; we only picked choice and unique ones but it is still hard to say something different about each of them. We have plans to introduce the Arrowhead 'Yet Another series' Yet Another Blue' 'Yet Another White Variegated' etc. to avoid this problem in the future.

Hosta clausa v. clausa

Hosta clausa v. clausa

One summer we had a visit from the owner of a well-known wholesale nursery, and as we came up the driveway past our patch of Hosta clausa, he asked what sort of Convolaria (Lily-of-the-valley) it was, and didn't believe us at first when we told him it was a hosta. Everything about this species is different. Instead of tight clumps, it runs, forming a ground cover of nearly erect leaves. And then, in late summer, it gets even more unusual when it starts flowering. Instead of the usual washed-out mauve blooms, it forms spikes of dark purple flower buds that shift to almost magenta at their bases. Even stranger, those buds never open, but stay as tight little balloons that keep on coming for weeks and weeks. Hands down the brightest, most wonderful flowering of any hosta, and sets everyone drooling the moment they see it, especially since it performs in late summer when the shade garden is apt to get a little dull.
