First Look Slide show @ Hostalibrary

Moccasin(z9aMobileAL)January 30, 2013

I browsed around Hostalibrary tonight looking for information and happened upon a slide show of First Look hostas.

It is worth oooohhhing and aaahhhing over believe me. Great looking hostas, great photography as well.

Makes me want to get out in the garden and GROW HOSTA.

That one called snow squall is a stunner!

YES YES, that #23 was the one which I lingered over, and you picked it right out!

I'm not a fan of Praying Hands so much, but this particular hosta seems like a variegated version of it. Snow Squall is descriptive of swirling gusts of falling snow, very aptly named.

The rest of the hostas are outstanding as well.

Yup, more examples of why hostas are the coolest plants on Earth.

You can try to make the same plants by hybridizing hostas and growing seedlings though. That is a lot of fun over winter.
