Today's hostas begin with "J" and what a lovely group they are.

Let's start with 'Janet', a lovely lutescent (gets lighter during the season) hosta. Mine was new in September 2005 and has grown well. Over those years, I've divided it twice, most recently to remove a sporting eye. This picture was taken July 29 and it is lighter now. One taken in early June would have shown a nearly solid green plant.

Here's a 'Janet' flower with visitor and I keep wondering if there was another visitor farther into the flower.

The pic above was taken July 24.

This pic from June 9 shows the plant a bit more green, but it also shows the sporting eye which I separated and am growing on its own.

'Jewel of the Nile' is one of my favourites. A large, specimen plant, it's a real show piece. I got it Spring 2005 and the only time it's been divided was this spring when I ended up just slicing a piece from the side of the plant as it was far too large for me to lift. The plant never skipped a beat. this picture taken July 15.

'Joyce Trott' - this small division was new to me in July from a friend. for years I thought I had 'Joyce Trott' (back before I knew better). Obviously I had bought a mislabelled plant early in my hosta career. It was only when I got serious about hostas that I realized it was nothing more than 'Undulata Univittata'. Anyway, this one, I'm assured, is the real thing.

Everyone's favourite hosta - 'June'. This one is on the east side of my house and gets morning light. A good sturdy hosta that survived unscathed this year when the sun got too intense and all the others in this garden fried. (This doesn't usually happen, but we had a very rainy May followed by a hot and sunny June. There's only about 10 feet between houses here, both of which have white aluminum siding. I think the sun was intensified and the plants were not yet hardy enough to take it).

I got this plant in spring 2006 and this was taken August 9. I've divided it twice, most recently last spring.

My other 'June'. this one is on the west side of my house and is a division from the previous plant, taken spring 2009. This picture was taken the same day as the picture above. Note the difference in colour as this one does not get as much light.

Rose, if I were in the USA, I'd send you a 'June'. That's one you MUST have!

Ann,

I have several that start with J, just haven't gotten any pictures. I have a June, but it doesn't look as nice as yours. I should probably move it to a new location and see if it fills out more.

Ann, I bought my 'Jewel of the Nile' after I saw yours. I'll try to take a picture of my 'June' and 'June Fever' in the next few days.

virginiarose - your 'June' has a good start. My second 'June' posted above, was smaller than that 2 years ago when I divided it and destroyed all the roots. I put it in a nursery bed for a year and last year put it where it is now and it's growing fast. Yours should look great in a year or two.
