Hosta of the year 2012. This one was on the top of my "have to have" list. This hosta is one of the most beautiful hostas I've seen in years and a real standout in the garden. I can't wait until this reaches full size!
Sum and Substance
A striking chartreuse-gold colored hosta with heavy substance and a waxy sheen. This one will get humongous some day. This was HOTY 2004.
This hosta has yellow-green leaves with a darker green margin, but I bought it especially because of the red petioles and I like how some of the red color comes up into the base of each leaf.
Hosta "Orange Marmalade"
Doesn't look like much now but supposedly it emerges in the spring with gold-orange leaves. This hosta goes through several color changes throughout the season with the orange variegation being the most sought after.
Praying Hands is a very unusual hosta with upright, narrow, tightly folded leaves that resemble hands folded in prayer. I decided to experiment with growing hostas in pots. The real test will be keeping them over winter. HOTY 2011.
This is a fairly new and hard to find hosta so I grabbed one up when I saw it at Wade and Gatton. I don't have much info on it, just liked the photo I saw on-line.
Frosted Mouse Ears
I love the mouse varieties of miniature hostas. Just adorable!! Somewhere I saw a list of 28 different mouse types.
Miniatures are perfect for borders, fairy gardens and in containers.
