    Whee!


    Wind River Gold



  • windymess z6a KC, Ks

    Winter Snow, poor thing, first in mid-May - it had already been munched on by rabbits; and the end of July - sunburned and tattered. It gets a lot of water, but too much sun I fear. I hope the trees will eventually shade it more, but until then it will probably be just huge and ugly.




    Whirlwind - new last year, but at least I did get it in the ground. October 24:



    Wheee! on May 17 - Fire Island behind it had already gone green. It's prettier when FI is bright yellow and the edges of Wheee! are more yellow too.

  • nicholsworth Z6 Indianapolis

    peren..you did it again..Woodland Elf has so many blooms!..I hope the scapes don't pull it over and uproot it Lol..Wylde Green Cream is adorable..

  • StevePA6a

    Waterslide, this rapidly made its way into my wagon at a local garden center. Separated out 3 streaked divisions, we'll see...


  • sherrygirl zone5 N il

    A few W hosta.

    Winter Snow had its first full season here, love it so far.
    Wheee on the left, happily growing in a blue pot.

    Ken and Paula - I, too, don't see the third comic - except on my phone. Looking at this thread on the computer I just see the man/dog picture and the Queen (both of which are great). Honestly, I had to think a moment about both of those.

  • peren.all Zone 5a Ontario Canada

    Lol nicholsworth! It is a good thing Hosta do not uproot like trees in a wind storm.....well not yet anyway! WGC really is adorable, I have had it an awfully long time and it deserves to get planted. I hope to get a new bed prepped this year.

    Steve I don't think any of us could have passed that one up. Good luck on the divisions!

    Very strange, I see the 3rd pic on my PC.

  • oursteelers 8B PNW

    Peren the pic with winter snow in it makes me long for spring!

  • peren.all Zone 5a Ontario Canada

    oursteelers your spring will certainly come before mine, I am buried under about 3 ft. of snow right now! I would much rather be seeing my Winter Snow than my winter snow lol!

  • mountainy man z8 Ireland

    Winter Snow soon after planting



  • Beth (5b - Mid-Michigan)

    What wonderful W's. I think I need to add Winter Snow to my collection again. Here are my W's

    -Babka

  • peren.all Zone 5a Ontario Canada

    Shadow very nice Wishing Well!

    sandyslopes White Bikini is wonderful!

    That is special Babka! Happy to see you taking part.

  • old_dirt

    nicholsworth, I really like your tall pot/container. Do you fill it with media, pot in a pot or possibly a false bottom?


  • old_dirt

    Although it a very nice plant, I wondered why would I want a "Winter Snow" as I try to put snow out of my mind in the summer. Then I realized I have a White Christmas and Winter Warrior.

    Wishing Well


    Winter Warrior


    Wolverine


    White Christmas


    Whirlwind

  • nicholsworth Z6 Indianapolis

    old_dirt..thanks..they were from Target at the end of summer 2017..they spent the winter empty in my garage then were planted May/June? 2018..they had a "drainage" tray (like a strainer) that sits about 1/2 inch from the bottom..no drain holes..this design is a complete failure in my opinion..soil became sour and saturated..I emptied them..husband drilled drainage holes..I put the tray back in..new soil with a lot of bark and now they're fine..a pot in a pot would've probably been fine..I've never done that and didn't really think of it!..some use rocks, water bottles, soda cans etc in the bottom of large pots..I used only potting media..I guess I'll know before too long if Praying Hands is happy..

  • Karin Black Cat

    The end of the alphabet is near and the weather is...I have no words for it...please spring come quick!












  • Karin Black Cat

    Wylde Green Cream


  • Tiddisolo Wales UK

    Sunnywood, If you are not getting spring colour on War Paint it has reverted to Niagara Falls.

    Happened to me with the first one I bought. The nursery kindly replaced it the following year and I got to keep NF. I think it's a tc problem.


    Wide Brim


    Whirlwind


    War Paint

  • M MW

    Great Ws! Wheeee! And Winter Snow have jumped to the top of my wishlist after seeing all these great pictures. I dont kknow why I cant get it out of my head that Wolverine looks like a spider haha I really dont like spiders so I may never be able to have that one

  • oursteelers 8B PNW

    Karin, I love that Whiskey Sour. It simply glows.

  • Karin Black Cat

    It is fantastic in spring!





    But in June it has already turned green...but I keep it for those spring moments :-)




  • nicholsworth Z6 Indianapolis

    Karin..I noticed Whiskey Sour years ago remember?..I bought several Fire Island because they reminded me of Whiskey Sour..I like the later "lime/chartreuse" color too..

  • steve duggins - Ohio

    Love What's that. One of my desert Island Hostas - Wave Runner #1:

    Wave Runner #2:


    Warwick Comet

    Well Shaked

    Woop Woop


  • mbug_gw

    I like those w's, Steve!

  • newhostalady Z6 ON, Canada

    Windymess, I bet your Winter Snow would look fabulous minus the deer munching and the excess sun! I'd be tempted to get a white golf umbrella to shade it from the sun! Maybe it would make the deer think twice before munching on it!

    Love the Wolverines!

    All the Wide Brims reminded me of the one I used to have. Lost it to HVX. If you don't mind, a few pictures of it from a few years ago.






    Only one "W" I took a photo of this year.
