Hosta S 2018 ....

Look for the Phil The ground hog today for a complete and precise weather report. While we are waiting show us some Ss today:

I wonder which hostas those are in the front.




I wonder how many people will answer.

    So many nice S's out there. Sapporo is new to me and looks interesting. My Sagae is so different I should be calling it something else (Liberty?)


    Sea Angel Wings - looking forward to this one getting bigger.
    Silver Bay and Star Power

    Seducer - looking better, starting to give The King a run for his money.

    Snake Eyes early May
    and in mid July after twisting off that sport in May
    Spartacus

    St. Paul

    Stephen King

    Too many S's, maybe we should split them into two days.

  • steve duggins - Ohio

    More - Stir It Up

    Summer Music - nice color change on this one

    Sunshine Glory - Love the color progression on this one. I need to do a better job of capturing it this year.

    Sweet Innocence

  • nicholsworth Z6 Indianapolis

    I love everyone's Sagae..Pamela Harper - the author of one of my favorite books Time - Tested Plants said Sagae was her favorite hosta and Great Expectations was a "bitter disappointment"..I always intended to get a Sagae..

    peren..Strawberry Yogurt is so cute..you have the best blooming hostas I've ever seen..

    Seducer on the left..
    Sum and Substance..love the big leaves..no nice pics of Striptease and Sunpower..

    A short story if I may.... I joined the Garden Web in the spring of 2014, met many nice people. One of them was Phil, or better known as Hosta Freak. I enjoyed his posts and photos and discovered his favorite hosta was Sagae, I didn’t have one. We lost Phil to hosta heaven that December....my first trip to my favorite nursery in spring of 2015 was to bring home a Sagae, thanks Phil, she’s a beauty!

    sunnywood..you alone have so many S hostas you could fill the S hosta post!..Sara's Sensation is so pretty..

    Sherry..I love hearing gardening stories..I have plants with connections to people and I love those plants MORE..Sugar and Spice in the aqua/turquoise/teal glazed pot is gorgeous..Surfer Girl is adorable..I love all little blue hostas..is the royal blue ceramic piece on the left of Sugar and Spice a bird?..

  • sherrygirl zone5 N il

    Yes, Nicholsworth, that a bird. I have 4 or 5 of those birds scattered around the gardens in my backyard, and of course, a bunch of blue pots.

    Surfer Girl grows like a weed!

    Sherry

  • nicholsworth Z6 Indianapolis

    Sherry..so cute :-) ..I appreciate almost all colors but blues and greens are my favorite..a bit of green that I saw today..we had snow on Thursday night..

    poor little fern..Surfer Girl sounds great..I love it when a hosta grows like a weed..

  • Laura z4b / Helsinki, Finland

    Here’s my Stitch in Time, I really like it and it defenitely differs from my other hostas but unfortunately it’s very slow grower.



  • sherrygirl zone5 N il

    Laura, don’t think I’ve seen a Stitch in a Time before, it’s different, I like it!

  • old_dirt

    So many great S's. The most for me.

    Lots of great S's.

    Mbug I have lusted after your Stag's Leap for a few years now.

    The good news is that it has obviously gone into tc. and supplies have arrived in Europe.

    I have two ordered. Hope it grows as well for me as it has done for you. Any advice?

  • ConnieMay

    Thank you Oursteelers...just trying to pay it forward for all of the enabling I’ve enjoyed over the years. ;)

  • newhostalady Z6 ON, Canada

    Saija, you started off the thread beautifully! And I had the same feeling about Silver Shadow---elegant looking.

    Really like your Stetson Karin! How old is it?

    Nice placement of your Silver Bay, peren.all. Smokey Mountains---what character! Isn't Snow Cap one that is difficult to grow? Yours doesn't look like it!

    Steve, your Sea Angel Wings is very pretty. I would love to see how it looks when it is larger too.

    Sunnywood, that Sara's Sensation is a beauty!

    Sherrygirl, that Sugar and Spice looks perfect in the blue pot!

    Love that Summer Music, old dirt!

    I lost my 1st Sagae to rot, so I purchased a second one. I am so glad that I did. All your Sagae's are smashing!

  • Karin Black Cat

    I got Stetson in 2017, it was a division from an adult plant.

  • sunnywood 5aChazyNY

    Newhostalady, I think your SAGAE has too wide of a yellow margin?

  • newhostalady Z6 ON, Canada
    Striptease #2 or Snake Eyes. Time will tell.

  • newhostalady Z6 ON, Canada

    So you think my Sagae is perhaps something else, sunnywood?

    Here is a photo of my first Sagae. Margins, I think, were also wider. It had been a field division from a hosta seller.

  • ConnieMay

    New Hosta Lady - is it possible that the single Sagae Leaf is actually Seducer?

  • sunnywood 5aChazyNY

    Newhostalady , I agree with ConnieMay , the leaf must be Seducer , the plant looks right.

  • newhostalady Z6 ON, Canada

    ConnieMay and Sunnywood, you are absolutely right! I have made a correction for the photo. Thank you both!

  • ConnieMay

    Don, Love Silk Kimono - don’t have that one - very elegant.

    Sunnywood, Sara’s Sensation is stunning!

  • windymess z6a KC, Ks

    I only have have photos of a few of my S’s... hopefully more next year. And speaking of which - I was heading out through the garage yesterday and noticed one little pip coming up on So Sweet! I think she’s over-anxious. We definitely have more winter to go.

  • steve duggins - Ohio

    I have a few more little ones that haven't been posted yet, so I thought I'd go ahead and add them. Silk Road - a sport of Silk Kimono. I like the way the leaves hang on this (and Silk Kimono)


    Smiley Face
    And since I took so many pics of Stir It Up last year


  • peren.all Zone 5a Ontario Canada

    So many wonderful S's! Thankfully I have some of these that I have not planted yet, but my goodness I could add at least one from every person who posted.

    Saija I got Silver Shadows and your pic makes me really happy I did.

    sunnywood I have Sara's Sensation. Yours is stunning! How long has it been in your garden and how large a plant did you start with?

    Thank you newhostalady. Smokey Mountains is one that has especially nice buds & quite nice flowers to add to it's character. Snow Cap is on Don Rawson's list of difficult to grow but it likes it here. I grow 5 others that are on the list that have given me no trouble at all. GE is also on the list but you certainly have no issues growing it to perfection!

  • mbug_gw

    Sherry...yes, the solid yellow leaves on Satisfaction have been consistent for a few years. It's a big plant, and I'm too chicken to try to separate.


    dave....I'm sure you will love Stag's Leap. If the tc's work its way over here I'll definitely invest.

    Needs some good filtered sun,,,but not too much. I try to provide some extra shade when.it gets too hot. Good luck with them!

  • sunnywood 5aChazyNY

    Peren , I planted Sara’s Sensation in 2015. It was a 2 gal plant from a local nursery. It really jumped in size last year.

  • peren.all Zone 5a Ontario Canada

    Thanks for the info sunnywood. You have a wonderful collection from A-Z!

    mbug - So many great specimens!

    Seeing all these wonderful Sugar and Spice makes me feel badly that I have not planted it yet! Sherry it sure likes being in that pot. What a lovely way to display it!
