A tiny Emerald Ruff Cut. Your first year ERC looks about three times bigger than mine, SquireJohn.

Eskimo Pie has been in for at least three years and just barely hangs on. There are fewer leaves than when it was planted, but they are getting bigger, so maybe there's hope.

Earth Angel in 2012. Last spring the weather went from the 40s to over 100 in one day, and almost everything that gets sun fried, including EA.

I was surprised to find so many "E"s, and I managed to miss Empress Wu.

Lots of great E Hostas. Lee, that Emerald Ruff Cut is great. I had heard it was difficult to grow. Some great Earth Angels out there too.

My Earth Angel in year 3. It's getting there.

El Nino

Empress Wu year 2. I have read that this one really takes off after the first few years. Have patience with the small ones.

EDOP 512. I really need to name this one as it's my best streaked breeder. It gives a large percentage of streaked seedlings and seems to allow the best features of the pollen parents. Any suggestions?

Bernd, that Emily could possibly be mis tag? Looks more like Ginko Craig :)
Thank Steve, ERC is a beautiful hosta too bad it has spring desiccation reputation.

Do you have the names of your streakers parents? Always a good starting point. If not, you could go topical and name it Smaug - it looks like a pretty fierce hosta!

Melati, you are right, I have both h.'Ginko Craig' and 'Emily Dickinson' growing next to each other, recorded them in the wrong sequence, so you will see it again under 'G'. I have no picture of Emily. Thanks! Bernd

Wow!! Just added a bunch to my "would like to have" list! And both sugested names for the streaker are great, I would love either one!! This next spring I have to start taking pix, got a new camera,now just have to learn how to use it! Along with the 12 or so other things I want to do . Does this madness never end? P.S. The Ellen joke is funny, every time I think of it, I start laughing.

SquireJohn, I think the Empress spends a lot of time growing a big root system to support her huge superstructure. Don't despair, she'll get there.

Earth Angel is blue but I got it anyway, love the leaf

Edge of Night, dark on dark

Elegans

Embroidery, the incredible shrinking hosta

Emerald Charger is a fragrant with a cowlick flip in its leaves
That's it on the right above the gold Sunny Delight

Emily Dickinson is a sweet hardy fragrant. Got mine from Mason Hollow Nursery in NH.

Empress Wu ready for the driveway bed in July, but not tipped out until Aug 2013

and for SquireJohn, here is her root system which developed in less than 2 months from bareroot.

Erie Magic on the right

Essence of Summer in Aug 2013....a fragrant hosta

Eye Catcher in July 2013...not a big hosta btw

Eye Declare impressive when it emerges, shown first in May 2013 with Ginzu Knife

and that's all folks...again .... NEXT

I do love those leaves though.

Beautiful Eskimo Pie melati! I am admiring all the El Nino's too. Mine has been quite slow in growth. And I am putting Emerald Ruff Cut on my wish list.

Moccasinlanding - I think your Edge of Night is mis-labeled, since it should be solid dark green.

melati, my h.'Eskimo Pie' also only has 2 or 3 leaves, growing since 2009 in my garden. It seems to only sit there, getting regulat water though. H. 'Dancing in the Rain' is actually shrinking. Bernd

Paul, thanks for bringing it to my attention about Edge of Night. I'll look into what happened, and if not solved then I'll make a new NOID thread.

I thought the name was appropriate for the way it looked though, because dark dark midleaf, and a dark green margin as well. Well HAH! Fooled me, it sure did.
