Lots of pictures today as "F" seems to be a common starting letter.

Let's start with 'Fire Island". I used to have 'Fair Maiden', but she was never very fair and as a last straw, she got infected by nematodes last year and got pitched.

'Fire Island' has been in my garden since spring 2007 and has been divided a couple of times. I find it forms a very loose mound and every time I've moved it, a division literally falls off. So, while I'm showing my largest plant which has been untouched for only 2 years, I also have a smaller division which is presently in a pot. I love its almost fluorescent yellow when it emerges in the spring and I also like its red legs.

Mine gets quite a bit of morning sun and stays fairly bright all summer but a few years ago I had one division in a dark spot and it was dull green by July. This picture was taken June 28.

'Fireworks' This strange little hosta has been here since spring 2008 and has not grown much in the last 2 years.

'First Frost' has become a good looking plant though at the beginning I wasn't sure about it. It was new spring 2007 and this picture was taken June 29. The margins still, near the end of August, have a creamy look to them.

'First Mate' was new August 2007. It has grown well but was divided for plant sale this past spring. I divided the entire clump and replanted the remaining eyes in 3 groups. I expect it to look quite full next year. This picture taken July 15.

'Fortunei Aureomarginata' was one of my early hostas - I've had it over a decade. Maybe 6 years ago I moved it to its present location where it has become a magnificent mound. This one is a real oldie but goodie. Picture taken July 15.

'Fortunei Hyacinthina' - streaked sport given the garden name "Twisting The Night Away" by a hosta friend who gave it to me recently when I visited Vancouver. You'll see all about it at http://www.pwk.resteddoginn.ca/hosta_hya_sprt3.php Scroll down to #8 division. Someday I'll get it renamed TTNA, but for now it remains classified under "F". This picture was taken just a few days ago as I've only been back from Vancouver for a week.

Message edited because the link didn't seem to work.

'Fragrant Bouquet' has been in my garden since September 2005 and has grown well since I moved from a corner that was too dark. This picture taken end of June.

'Francee' is another oldie but goodie and one which I've had for a long, long time. Early in 2007 I divided a clump of 'Francee' that was languishing between a tree and my driveway and doing nothing much. I sold off some of it and planted a small division in a spot which gets more light and water and it just took off. This plant is a real looker. Picture taken July 24.

You can see 'Fragrant' Bouquet' and 'Fortunei Aureomarginata' in the background and to the right. On the left is 'Liberty'.

'Francis Williams' was acquired only in 2009 and put into the dark corner where nothing else likes to grow. We'll see how she does. This picture from June 20.

'Frosted Dimples' on July 15. Was new spring 2007 and has grown slowly but steadily. I like the powder blue which it retains all season.

'Frosted Mouse Ears' from July 29. This was new in 2009 and has not grown a lot since I acquired it. To my eyes, it's nearly identical to 'Mighty Mouse'.

'Fujibotan' from July 29. Nearly recovered from when I dropped the mound while trying to wrestle it apart to take some divisions this past spring. I'm afraid I really mangled a few emerging eyes. And all but one of the flower scapes this year have withered rather than developing. Seems otherwise healthy; so I'll wait for next year.

This plant bears many DOUBLE lavender flowers on extremely tall scapes. Mine was new in spring 2006.

Finally the last "F" hosta from MY garden - 'Full Moon'. This small, very blue hosta was new in spring 2007. It grows slowly and retains its blue colour well. I never got new mulch in this year and I'm afraid mine got some mud splashed up on it. This picture from July 15.

Rose -that's a lovely looking 'Fireworks'. I've had mine for three years now and can't get it grow properly. Besides, mine is a slug and earwig magnet. Perhaps I should try one from a new source.

Irene, 'Fireworks' is a slow grower. Be patient and see what it does next year. And it's not supposed to get large. If slugs are getting at it, maybe a slightly different location would work or a copper collar.

Fire Island, new in 2010. Said to do better in sun than many hostas, but I'm going to move it further back in this bed. Some of the leaves have been burned thin.

Fragrant Blue is very blue. It didn't begin to green up for me until after mid-August, even with torrential rains and my own overhead sprinkler watering.

Fragrant Bouquet came with the garden, but I never saw why it was a Hosta of the Year until I removed its evergreen shrub of a neighbor. This plant has really greened up, I'm thinking in part due to getting its fair share of dappled sunlight. I also plan to move it to the sunny end of this bed and see how it fairs next spring.

Fragrant Dream, new to me in 2009 from a local nursery. Probably one of my top hosta picks. Love the way its scent hangs on the air in the evening. And it's a later bloomer, yielding flowers after the early summer hostas and before the late plantaginea and Royal Standard blooms.

Frances Williams. Several of these came with the garden and have only looked really good 2 out of 4 year so far. I'm planning to combine a couple of these elsewhere to free up space in this bed, as well as rehome another couple plants. This is actually a pic from last year because I forgot to take any before summer hit.
