Hi folks. The hostas for today start with N and O. I have only one "N" hosta and that's my own seedling of 'Outhouse Delight'. Like its parent, it emerges white and usually fries in the sun and the second flush of leaves is misty. This was a seedling from 2008.
'Obsession' new spring 2007. this picture from June 20. this plant was divided this year and replanted in 3 groups which I later dug and replanted in my veggie garden separately to have for plant sales next year. This plant does not thrill me and I'm going to get rid of it.
OHS Streaker - my name for an unnamed streaked seedling which was a gift from the Ontario Hosta Society when they toured my garden last year. I would suspect it might have been a seedling from 2008 or so. This picture taken July 18.
'On Stage' - ALWAYS the last plant in my garden to emerge. I've had it since August 2006 and this year it really looked good. It stayed light green until early August and brightened up this dark corner where it is. This picture taken June 20.
Finally, 'Outhouse Delight'. New spring 2007, it has shown a fair bit of growth. Supposed to be rhizomatous and likely is, but not aggressively so. This picture taken July 8 after it had greened up a bit. The leaves on this are smaller than on my seedling, 'Nolan on Ice'.
