I just got 3 big, beautiful hostas from across the country in 90s temps. The Hosta Boyz have never disappointed me. I got Golden Meadows, Midnight at the Oasis and Flemish Sky, all at least 2 eyes. If they are not a DG Top 5, they should be!
You will love Golden Meadows, it is really heat tolerant. Green and ruffled this time of year but holds up well in south. Also the slugs have not bothered it.
I got a nice order from them in the spring, Sharp Dressed Man and Yellow Polka Dot Bikini. :)
Please show us some pictures once they're planted. I have both 'Golden Meadows' and 'Flemish Sky'. I like them both. My FS has lost some of his blueness with the heatwave we've had recently in zone 5b. Now its gotten colder again. My hostas are mighty confused . They don't know whether to shiver or sweat. I just noticed that when something is wrong with my hostas I refer to him as "he". "Golden meadows" is a "she". Does anyone else do that.
I looked at various sites for pics of the GM, but none seem to show either the strong color or waviness of yours. Am I right that the GM is the one in your second picture (and on the right in the first)?
It really is. I'll order some either from Naylor's or a place in SC (closer to me), though I suspect I'll have to keep them in pots until the weather lets up a bit. Or, I could put them in place of the heuchera that are getting crisped and put the heuchs in pots until... oh, dear.
By the way: do others notice the incredible disparity in pics online? I mean even from nurseries. Some show GM as cream centered with green edges and only a touch of crinkling. Others look like plantnutz's pic. Very confusing.
That's one good thing about Naylor Creek, they do offer a lot of unusual plants for what seems to be a regular price. I got Yellow Polka Dot Bikini from them. Also the plants are big and they have good reviews on the WatchDog.
