'Teaspoon' was new spring 2008 and is a FAST grower. I decided it was too fast a grower and last autumn divided it all up with the intention to sell off all of it. However, in the end, I decided to keep one division and it's now in a pot until I decide what to do with it. This photo from July 18.
'Twisting the Night Away' was a gift from a Vancouver area hosta friend in August. It's his own sport of 'Fortunei Hyacynthina'. If you go to http://www.pwk.resteddoginn.ca/hosta_hya_sprt3.php and scroll down to division #8, mine comes from that division.
That covers MY "T" hostas. Now let's see and hear about yours.
Teaspoon, planted this spring. So far, I'm not enamored with this one but got it because lots of hosta people seem to like it. I think I remember that Noreaster has a really nice specimen. Pic from July 16.
The Razor's Edge, acquired last year in the hosta swap. This one is planted in nearly full sun (as evidence by the bleached Pineapple Upsidedown Cake in the background) and has performed very well this year! I even took a small division from it in the spring. Pic from August 16.
Tick Tock, acquired this year in the hosta swap. Adorable =) And I confess to just making room for it over the weekend. It's on the far side of my large Sum and Substance that's already mature, so it shouldn't need to be moved in the future. Pic from September 6.
Tiny Tears, my tiniest hosta. It hasn't been babied since I got it last summer other than having a wire cage placed above it as bunny and squirrel protection. This one would probably do better in a pot, but I'm trying it in the ground first. Sorry the pic is a bit blurry. Taken August 12.
Twist of Lime, new this year from the hosta swap. I'm trying it in my sunniest hosta bed, but I think the leaves are a little too thin for this spot. Too bad, because I wanted to brighten it up so the variegation is more noticeable. Will likely move it somewhere else this fall. Pic from August 10.
Twist Lime, acquired from Hallson's last summer. I divided it up in May as a border for this bed. So far I see good growth, but they just look like little green hostas. Might eventually replace them with something brighter. Pic from August 10.
I also have 'Tick Tock' and have found it a fast grower. Mine was new August 2006 and has been divided twice, most recently last spring when I teased the entire mound apart, got more divisions to sell than I anticipated and then replanted the rest in three groups. This picture from July 18.
'Tokudama Aureonebulosa' which I acquired in 2003 and moved about 3 years ago into brighter light. A real slow grower, but this year it hasn't looked really happy and the leaves have mostly gone brown already. I'm going to dig it up to see if I have root competition or something going on. This picture from June 20.
'Touch of Class' was new spring 2004. This plant was divided once before I knew about patented plants and last year a section turned solid blue (Chris from Hallson's says I can call it 'Bulletproof'). this year, I dropped a spade on it early in the season and it affected how lovely the mound looks this year. :-( This picture from July 8 and it still looks good late in the season.
'Tom Schmid' purchased from Hallson Gardens in June/ 2011. This Hosta was put in the ground right away and he loved it. He also puts up with some sun and neglect, no pouting at all from this guy. Also the slugs have not touched it, knock on wood. I fell in love with this Hosta when I saw it in Noreaster's garden, she actually had two of them together and I really loved it, Its very upright.
This one is called 'Twisted Sister'! I bought it several years ago, and after 2 moves it seems to be doing better. I traded a division with someone for his breeding program this year. I didn't think it was all that pretty...I just bought it for the name!
I looked up 'Titanic' in my journal, and it said that I don't know where or when I bought it! I split mine this spring for a friend, but they found one the fall before. Remind me next spring, and for postage you can have the division.
