plantnutz, Yes, I do believe I could be in the hostaholics catagory. I have lots of shade to beautify.
I don't have many and my wants are big. Most of mine are just in the ground for their first winter. So, I am really excited when I see them coming up. And, tonight, we are supposed to have a freeze! WHY!
DO you have lots and how long have you been into this hostaholics attitude?
I got interested in hostas last year when I moved into this house with lots of shade. Everyone told me I couldn't grow hostas in California, so I did it anyway. They all have come up so far, except for one and he's really slow. I have 30 different ones and not enough space for all of them. Hopefully, I'll be able to share in the future. Most of mine are still young yet, but have a few eyes already.
I am not a hostaholic, but do love them. However, after getting my first catalog from Plant Delights (www.plantdelights.com) I am very impressed, and excited about the possibilities... the bug may bite me yet! I have about 20 or so hostas but only about 6-8 varieties, of which I have lost the tags for a few.
I have a large inventory of hostas that are availble for trade or sale if you are interested. I also ship out for postage several different ones to newbies. Donna from Ca. (posted above) recieved some of mine last year. If you have a list you can e-mail me and I'll mail my list to you.
