Always fun, but I need to take a season off! see you next year!
In! I feel bad I do not have many of the "up to date" hostas in my garden. I can only send what I have we are money strapped and hope who ever I send to like my choices. I will be happy to get anything, have always enjoyed the hostas I recieved from this swap! Beautiful and heathy. Thanks ZZ! Have a great day everyone...... Ronna
Mittsy, that photo had me drooling! I got Quilting Bee in a trade last year, and it was immediately a favorite.
I was reading the thread about giants, and I'm thinking I have about 2 more years before the front garden needs to be completely re-arranged, or it will be one mass of hostas! Not that it would be a bad thing! But that gives me a bit longer to test anti-deer methods. I'm considering planting mints & thyme right under the giants. Since they come up before my hostas, maybe their presence would keep the deer away from the tender shoots. And since they would be in their own little spot under the oaks, I don't really need to worry about the herbs taking over (blacktop on one side & gravel roads & driveways on the other 3).
Here is my list of haves.
My wants are
any that I don't have thanks. BEV
Here is my list:
Blue Mouse Ears
Undulata Alba Marginata
Fire and Ice
Sum & Substance
Think that's all....geesh....
Here are a few from my wish list, but no matter what I get, I will love it!
Sum it Up
The Razer's Edge
This message was edited Jun 3, 2010 7:30 AM
OK, I am in... and that quilting bee has me drooling.. ANY new hosta is a joy and a gift.. I will post my haves in a bit.
This is my first year that I have hostas that have gotten big enough to divide. I am so excited!
Not all of these are big enough to dig and divide yet, but I will do my absolute best.
Here is my list of haves:
A Many SplendoredThing
Abiqua Drinking Gourd
Arc de Triomphe
Clifford's Forest Fire
Dance with Me
Key Lime Pie

.....Plus some of the most beatiful old giant blue NOIDs I have ever seen. I wouldn't include these unless you specifically told me you wanted one.
I would love, love, love a Komodo dragon or anything mini. Well, I love them all. Doesn't matter what you send, really. It will get a good home....
Editing to add another to the wish list: Night before Christmas or Undulata Univittata

Oh my...I'm so impressed with your list! You must have an awesome garden! How's that Empress Wu doing for you? She's on my want list!
Count me in! I was not going to participate this year, we are building a house and will have to move all our plants. However, I was in the garden over the weekend and the hosta's that are the biggest and look the best all came from this swap! Plus this may give me a reason to puchase a few new plants to swap!
Hosta's I have:
Birchwood Parky's Gold
Lakeside Beach Captain
Lakeside Down Sized
St. Elmo's Fire
Sum & Substance

I'd like to join in the fun. My list is in my journal. http://davesgarden.com/tools/journal/viewbycat.php?catsort=name2&cat=29999
Joycet: This is only my third year as a hosta-addict (I started collecting in 2007). My gardens look better this year than last, and I spent a big part of the spring moving stuff around. There is still so much to move around and just not enough time. Don't be impressed by the list - my gardens are nowhere as beautiful as some of the folks that post on this site. Maybe in time.....
"The Wu" (as my husband calls her) was pitiful for the first two years - one lone leaf. This year, however it has probably tripled in eyes and is finally starting to look like it might be a giant. I have it in too shady a spot I think, but I don't have anywhere else to put it where it will be in back of other hostas. Now that all my spring work is about done, I am thinking about digging a new bed and moving it there....maybe.
This message was edited May 18, 2010 5:20 AM
I'm in. This will be my first official swap to participate in.
For a list of my "have's" - please click on my name and go to my journal. I love them all, so any that I do not have would be fine for me - except mini's. Seems the voles like them the best in my yard.
This message was edited May 25, 2010 5:58 PM
Well, I just love new beds!!! So go for it! I just saw the picture of Empress Wu as a mature plant this year and all I can say is WOWSERS! That thing is a monster! So for you, it really was sleep, creep and leap!!
Count me in. Wasn't going to do this, like others, but this will give me a good excuse to buy another new hosta. I will post my haves later.
Joyce...you don't have to buy anything....just divide from your yard!
Hopefully you are right joycet, but if we get someone's name that has more than we do, we may have to do a "purchase" to get something that they don't have. lol. (just browsing "maozamom's journal) - whose journal looks very similar to mine.lol.
(one who is always looking for a "reason" to buy more hostas!)
I would like to join in!! Will post my hostas tonight.
Baby Bunting (new baby plant 5/2010)
Blue Cadet (new baby plant 5/2010)
Blue Mouse Ears
Fire and Ice
Funkia "lancifolia" (new baby plant 5/2010)
Noid Huge green leaves.
Sweet Home Chicago

I'll be watching this trade happen but won't be involved this year. I just have too much already to do in my gardens and since I can only move at a snail's pace I figured I better just sit this one out.
I did not participate last year so I am definitely ready for it this year.
Please sign me up Lelan.
I don't have a list - I never met a hosta I did not like. This year I am partial to yellows, blues and I always love the streakers. I would love Liberty and Revolution which bit the dust for me after several years.
Okay, I made a list which I am sure is not complete but here goes:
Blue Mouse ears
Emerald Ruff Cut
Fire and Ice
Fortunei Alba Picta
Fried Green Tomatoes
Ice Age Trail
Iron Gate Dellight
Lakeside Black Satin
Lakeside Blue Jeans
Lakeside Cindy Cee
Lakeside Coal Miner
Lakeside Cranberry Relish
Lakeside Dot Com
Lakeside Hula Hoop
Lakeside Looking Glass
Lakeside Love Affair
Lakeside Party Dress
Lakeside Sapphire Pleatls
Lakeside Surf Rider
Night Before Christmas
Roller Coaster Ride
Silver Threads and Golden Needles
Streaking in Nebraska
Sum and Substance
Touch of Class
Yellow Splash Rim

Not able to participate this year since it's only my first year growing hostas and I don't have any big enough to share (yet!), but hoping I'll be able to participate in next year's swap!
Ready for swapping some hostas! I was going to just leave everything alone this year, BUT can not resist doing at least One trade.
I have lots and love them all but would be partial to receiving yellows or mini/small ones. No room for LARGE ONES! LOL
That should leave this swapper nothing but surprises!
Thanks for hosting once again ZZ, I have sent you a Dmail.
I have the most beautiful hosta garden only due to the swaps. I love them. Course it is always a reason for me to buy a new hosta and divide between me and my swap person......excuses excuses...LOL Well I want to make sure they get the kind they want...LOL

Wowzer! my that is a wonderful list. Post a pic if you have some. I love to see that many wonderful beautiful hostas.
I am sooo ready to get my name of my secret swap person. It is getting really hot here.
We went from 50 to 90 in 2 days, course we are suppose to cool o in the 80's next week.
n2birds, if we mail to a warmer zone is there a better way to send to you all?
In the winter I received plants that were put in insulated wrap to keep warm would that help for cool?
Weeding: WOW. And I thought I was out of control! That list is amazing. How is your revolution doing? Mine is just pitiful. I had high hopes for it this year - but it's still just a tiny pipsqueak. You have so many with names I don't recognize. Which ones are your favorites?
I am with you all about the heat. i wish the cut off for this swap was this week so I could get these things in the mail. We are going to be in the 90's tomorrow. Hopefully it will get cooler again, though.... I plan to just ensure that my paper towels are really moist when i send. I don't think you can do much more than that....Hostas are pretty forgiving.....
