Ottawa, ON(Zone 5a)

Hi folks. Today we will focus on all the other hostas beginning with "L" EXCEPT the Lakeside ones.

'Last Dance' - new to me spring 2007 and has proven fertile as I have a lovely variegated seedling from it. this picture taken July 18.

'Lemon Frost' - new to me spring 2007. This one is a fast-growing, enthusiastic mini. I've been dividing it for a border and it was the first to bloom in my yard this year. This picture taken June 28.

'Liberty' was new to me spring 2009, though it was a large plant to start with. However, I'm struck by the amount of growth in 3 years if you look at the pics on my SmugMug gallery - http://violaann.smugmug.com/Garden/Hostas-in-my-Garden-K-L/12183270_DLprmf/6. This picture was taken July 15. This is fast becoming the most impressive plant in my garden which has very few really large hostas.

'Limey Lisa' is a fast-growing mini which forms a VERY tight mound. It was new to me September 2005 and has been divided a couple of times. This past spring I teased apart all of the roots when taking some divisions from it and I planted them back individually rather than in clumps. Next year, it should be a solid mass of hosta. This picture taken July 8.

'Little Red Rooster' was new to me spring 2007. This mini has lovely red legs and I think it has a slightly rhizomatous habit. It was divided this past spring. This picture taken June 28.

'Little Sunspot' was new spring 2007. It has quickly become a real bright spot in the garden. This picture taken June 28.

'Lonesome Dove' was new spring 2008 and is a slow grower as one might expect with mostly white leaves. It DOES have a few more leaves this year than last and is nearly dwarfed by the large bloom. This picture taken July 15.

I like the 'London Fog'!

Loyalist is one of my favourite. My Lonesome Dove is doing better sence I moved it but no recent picture yet.
I have added Little Sunspot and Love Pat to my wish list, they are just beautiful! :)

'Luna Moth', new to my garden this summer. The picture was taken today. I'm really impressed by her staying power. Great substance.

I really love that 'Little Sunspot' :)

Ottawa, Canada

Rose 1656, I love that 'Little Bo Beep'. At 7 PM on Sept 7, I put my last hosta purchase in the ground - 'Little Devil'. We're getting to the end of the alphabet, so, hopefully I won't be tempted by an absolutely must have. Dear hubby goes out every day to inspect the new additions. I think he likes them. The only way I can get away with enlarging beds is by stating that it makes his mowing of the lawn easier.

I lost my first 'Little Sunspot'. I bought this one in 2009. this picture was taken on Sept. 7.

That is a beautiful little Hosta, how much sun does it get?

Ottawa, Canada

It's hard to tell how much sun my 'Little Sunspot' actually gets. It's under spruce trees. The sedum which takes a lot of sun doesn't seem to mind the location. I bought a light meter at Lee Valley today. I'll try it out on LS for 12 hours and I'll report back. ViolaAnn's LS appears more symmetrical than mine, so she must have it planted in open light.

Mine gets morning sun as it's really close to the neighbour's driveway on the east. I wonder if yours would like more water than it gets under the trees.

It sure is a beautiful Hosta :)

Ann,

London Fog is a small hosta, so I bet you can find some room for it!

Ottawa, ON(Zone 5a)

Sport of 'Allegan Fog' isn't it? Should likely be about the same size. :-)

Oquawka, IL(Zone 5a)

Mine measures about 14" wide, but I have lots of underachievers!

Royal Oak, MI(Zone 6a)

Well, London Fog is a tad shorter than Allegan Fog, and I read somewhere that it's also a slower grower. I planted mine near each other, so I could compare.

Virginiarose, the light meter that I placed in front of 'Little Sunspot' calculates the amount of light a hosta gets over a 12 hour period and reports whether the light is ''sun", "part sun", "part shade" or "shade". The reading that I got for LS was "part shade". LS gets some midday light from the south as well as some filtered light through the overhead spruce branches.

BTW, I added a Water Stik beside LS, as ViolaAnn thought that it might respond to more watering. At insertion the water stik read sufficient water, however two days later it showed "red". A blue light means too much water, a green light means sufficient water, a yellow light means water soon and a red light means water now.

Well the water stick sounds like a good idea, takes the guess work out of watering. Thanks for the information!
