Hosta Yellow River

By Eric Smith/Paul Aden/Pete Ruh – 1993

This hosta will form a magnificent clump given time. Reaching 20 inches tall the 13 x 10 inch leaves are topped with 48 inch scapes that have white flowers. The spectacular dark green foliage has a wide yellow margin that develops a more creamy white appearance as the summer heat moves in.  Light shade will keep it looking nice. The leaves are cordate, ribbed and have wavy margins. This Montana sport can reach 4 feet across and, having an upright habit, the long pointed leaves with good substance are stunning.

Hosta Pineapple Punch

By Amy Bergeron – 2005

This is a sport of Pineapple Upsidedown Cake and the form is very similar.  It is about 13 inches tall and matures to a 2 foot clump with very wavy, long, lance shaped leaves.  The leaves are shiny and 10 inches by 3 inches, and are dark green with a yellow to cream edge. The lavender flowers appear in August. Just like Pineapple Upsidedown Cake it is a fast grower.

Hosta Paradise Joyce

By Marco Fransen

Paradise Joyce is a medium sized sport of Halcyon and it is named for Mr. Fransen’s wife. It is blue with a yellow center which becomes more white as the season progresses. The leaves have a “powdery” finish. This hosta holds up well to frost due to it’s heavy substance. Lavender flowers appear in late summer.

Hosta Geisha

By Vaughn 1983

Geisha is also known as Ani Machi which is from Japan.  I think what happened is that it was a sport that was registered but didn’t turn out to be persistent; so it is the same plant.  It is an outstanding selection with yellow to chartreuse centers and dark green margins. This small plant, with glossy leaves, has a distinguished twist to its upright growth habit. The 15 inch flower scapes sport lavender flowers, but they are nicer than the average hosta flowers.  The stamens are long and graceful and they are streaked with white.

  Christmas tree is a medium to large sized hosta.  The deep blue green, heart shaped leaves have a creamy white edge and heavy corrugated substance.  The lavender flower scapes are widerat the bottom making them look like a Christmas Tree.

Daylily Odds and Ends

By Hanson 1999

Odds and Ends is a semi-evergreen tetraploid that is 32 inches tall and holds bouquets of 6 inch blooms starting in the early to mid-season.  The flowers are fragrant and are a lovely lavender with a violet eye above a chartreuse throat.  If I had to pick a tetraploid that is the best grower I’d have to say it is Odds and Ends.

Pulmonaria saccharata—Mrs. Moon

This plant has nearly everything going for it including multiple names.  It is also called Lungwort or Bethlehem Sage.  Pulmonaria has pretty pink bell shaped flowers appearing in April and May, then turn blue as they age.  But even after the flowers are gone the leaves bring beauty to the garden.  They are fuzzy and green and have white or silver spots.  The leaves are semi-evergreen, persisting well after frost.  If they start to look ragged just remove them and new ones will fill in.  The plant is only about 10 inches tall but spreads to form a patch.  This tough plant tolerates sun or shade and very dry or over wet conditions.  It also is deer and rabbit resistant.

Hosta Resonance

By Shaw/Aden 1976

Resonance is a low growing, small hosta with medium green leaves that have a creamy/white wavy edged margin. The orchid flowers appear in August. It forms a nice clump with lanceolate leaves and the leaves turn to the side giving it a pinwheel shape. A mature plant is 13″ tall by 30″ wide.

Hosta Wide Brim

Paul Aden 1979

Wide Brim has a bright grass green center with a wide irregular cream to yellow margin which holds throughout the season. Round, cordate leaves are 8″ long x 6” wide with 11 veins.

A rapid grower, it is low and wide, with great color and texture. Wide Brim is bound to be a standout in any planting. Because it doesn’t get very tall, it goes well in front of the larger blue hostas.

Forms a wide 3 foot clump but only 1.5 feet tall. The scape is foliated and very thick and has a double twist (twisting one revolution every 3-5 inches) sporting two stalks of flowers higher up on the scape. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July.

$8.00

Hosta Twist of Lime

Bruce Banyai/Bob Solberg 1991

Bright lemon yellow leaves with a wavy deep green margin. The leaves are 1” x 3” and lancolate with 3 veins.

This mini hosta forms a neat small semi upright clump and can spread up to 10” wide by 4” tall.

This cute introduction is a mutation of H. ‘Lemon Lime’ and is great for the rock garden or as an edger!

The clump is topped with a profusion of deep violet flowers in late spring.
