Today's hostas start with "R". (If you have some starting with "Q", please add them to the "P" thread). I've got quite a few "R" hostas, but not as many as "S" which I might split into two.

BTW, when you post your pics, please tell us something about how old the plant is and when, during the season, the picture was taken. it all helps when we choose new hostas for our gardens.

We start with 'Rainbow's End' which I got 2 years ago. Actually my 2nd RE - the first, which I mail-ordered, was pretty small and the squirrels kept digging it up. After the 3rd time, the plant didn't make it; so I replaced it locally. This is a real winner of a plant. Not large, but thick leaves which are virtually untouched by slugs in this bad slug year when all the plants around it are in ribbons. It's an amazing contrast. This picture July 15.

'Rainforest Sunrise' new to me spring 2008. This picture taken July 15. I've had mixed feelings about this one in the past as it seemed to collect all sorts of refuse from the trees above, but it has looked very good this season and survived the slugs well too.

'Raspberry Sundae' was new this past summer. This new introduction promises to be a pretty plant, but it's not yet registered and its heritage seems to be a big secret. This picture from July 29.

'Red October' was a gift from a friend spring 2007. It had a rough beginning when the soil in one of my older gardens proved to be too heavy; so I ended up putting it in a clay pot for a year to dry out. Amended the garden with lots of sand and compost and it's doing well now. this picture from July 15.

'Regal Splendor' was new in spring 2006 and did well. In spring 2008, I moved it to be the centrepiece of a new garden and it proceeded to pout for a couple of years. But last year and this year it finally looked happy and bloomed with its regally tall flower scapes. I have planted 4 small hostas around this one - a division of 'Halcyon', 'Ripple Effect', 'Full Moon', and 'Blue Ivory'. That was done last autumn and I'm still evaluating how well it works.

'Remember Me' was new spring 2006. It was white when I got it and I was really surprised the next spring when it emerged bright yellow. This one marked time in my garden until 2010 when it finally grew to be more than one eye. Has more growth this year and is looking good. this picture from July 18. BTW, with the amount of rain (or something) we've had this year, it has retained a yellowish cast all summer.

'Restless Sea' is a sport of 'Salute' (something I didn't realize until a couple of days ago when I noticed the similarity between the two of them). The main difference is a saw-tooth edge on RS's leaves. this was new to me spring 2007 and has done well. However, I moved it in July to a location where it can be seen as the border hosta next to it was threatening to swamp it. This pic taken July 29.

'Ripple Effect' was a bonus plant with an order of hostas last year - 2010. I've planted it under my 'Regal Splendor'. This picture taken July 29. As with all the Halcyon/June family, it has held up well in this bad slug year.

BTW, if you have 'The Razor's Edge' it will be filed under "T" as "The" is a proper part of the name.

Sue Howard - have you posted a separate thread that you are looking for those three hostas? I would suggest that you do as it could easily get lost buried in the middle of this thread.

I absolutely love the upright hostas. Rectifolia 'Ogon Tachi' caught my eye because of this. It's repotely yellow early in summer. The flower scapes appear to be gigantic. I've planted it in a protected area because the scapes appear to be fragile.

My Ogon is 3 years old now. It has very nice scapes. It is blooming now with 7 scapes. It is a rapid increaser for me. I wouldn't say that it has ever appeared yellow to me, but is a bright light green. It doesn't darken much in my location as the season progresses.

Could have sworn that you were going to say that DS was 'Regal Splendor'. Do you have a picture of DS.


It makes no difference to me in which year a picture is taken. I find it helpful, however, to know when during the growing season a picture is taken because the change in a hosta's appearance is often quite dramatic. Cases in point - 'Golden Meadows' and 'Guardian Angel' which I bought for their spring display.

Rose, I bought it in the spring when GM had that wonderful yellow medio variagation with the green stripes. However, I still like it later on because of the ruffled edges. I would say that I like it better than 'Blue Umbrellas' which is never blue for me.
