Krossa Regal- Grows like a weed for me
Kiwi Full Monty
Knockout knocked me out! Wow! (Yeah, I really did say that :) Had to compliment Hippie on it, though.
I'm sitting this round out, no K's that I took pics of last year. Now, going to go research knockout to figure out how I missed that one?!?
Next year I have to put pictures in 26 a-z folders - can't find Korean Snow or Komodo Dragon.
Krossa Regal has been happily growing for years, a nice carefree hosta.
I have the name on the photo, can never spell this one. Kifukirin Ko Mame is a tiny thing. I had to put in in a 4 inch pot to keep it from being eaten. It looks like it will be a vigorous grower if I can keep the slugs away, but never big. Mature size is 3-5 inches.

Krossa Regal, what a great plant. I wish it was fertile.

hosta 'Key Lime Pie'.
hosta 'Key West'.
hosta 'Krossa Regal'.
Krossa Regal is a lovely hosta, did not know it was sterile. My plant is not doing so well, but then blues are not my forte here. Last year, my young KR had brown spots on the leaves, which might be that long strange word BKay says her Blue Angel is stricken with....I cannot recall what it is.
Won't be showing Krossa Regal, Kaleidochrome, Key Lime Pie, all too young or (Kaleidochrome) is on order.
Key West new 2013 from Hallsons
King of Spades here since 2012 and I really like it. Compact, sturdy, and dark blue green. Shown in late Oct 2013
Sure do need some nice "K's" and "Q's"......

yet another 'Kiwi Full Monty'
and another 'Krossa Regal'
and I also have a small new 'Knockout' who was sadly absent on photo day! Next year!
Ken's Joy a good friend Ken Joy of Joys Walking Garden gave me this plant . A beautiful garden in Ausable Forks , N Y.
I wish I had something new to offer. But, then again, I love both of my K's.
Krossa Regal is a strong grower here. I think it has 100 eyes.
Kiwi Full Monty was purchased bare root from Naylor Creek in fall of 2011. By spring of 2013 it was lookin' pretty good.
H. 'Katsuragawa Beni' - a year old one...love the way the red petioles extend into the base of the leaf.
H. 'Kifukurin Otome Ki' - a two-year old...lovely little thing.
H. 'Krossa Regal' - one of my favourite blues ... It retains some blue throughout each season. Here are two of them, both divisions. When the peonies bloom, the blue is a knockout!
I almost forgot.......When I divided 'Kifukurin Otome Ki', I was surprised to find that it was a " stoloniferous" hosta...some of you may remember the surgery I performed and the ensuing discussion re stoloniferous root system...here is a pic to illustrate..
This one is so much a favorite you'll have to see three pictures of it. .
One stand out surprise for me last summer was King Tut. It had always been in lots of shade. It never got even slightly bright over the summer. I moved it to the west side with hot sun most of the day. It began to glow from within. I have quite a few other yellows on this side but this one stood out from all the rest.
Nice colors in the picture above, yellow King Tut with lavender flowers.
Paul your Kabitan is to die for! Where is that wish list?
Everyone's hosta photos have been so great. We have some beautiful photos with fantastic plants being shown! Paula
Another Krossa Regal. Like others, it is HUGE and grows like crazy, I moved it this past fall, what a job!
Komodo Dragon. First year and one of my firsts in a container. (looks like I miss spelled in the photo)
The same 'Krossa Regal' unfurling in early May.
Oh please let me wipe the drool off my iPad. I am embarrassed at how long I have stared at some of these pictures! Steve, your picture of Key West is mesmerizing.
Some of the Krossa Regal's leaves are nice and "ripply", with great undulation. Others are flatter. Is that age, location, or just the luck of the draw?
A clump of three Krossa
zKathy.....I'm the same....mesmerized by McTavish's 'King Tut'! What a beauty! I have a new Mister Watson, a sport of KT....lots to look forward to!
Thanks Kathy. That pic of Key West shows a plant that's only 3 years old. It will get much bigger with bigger leaves over the next few years.
Katy Q,just planted last May. Looking forward to seeing it emerge this year. Phil
I think Krossa Regal won the most posted on this K posting and Myrle found one of mine to post while we were gone. I also have more then two of it and love it lots
This is one I have called KAREN
My Kiwi Full Monty
Found Korean Snow (and dozens of other hosta photos).
