New Additions - IV Edition

hostabffAugust 11, 2014

Some additional new additions - beautiful centers with a splash of color....

Viva Pinata

Celebration of Angels

Patricia Snyder Memorial

Fun Coneflowers

Blue Mouse Ears - the flower is perfectly proportioned with the size of the plant. One of the few hosta where I look forward to the blooms.

I have and love PSM, but I'm really drawn to Viva Pinata. Is it listed as a white or pale yellow self? Either way, I love it.

Viva Pinata is my favorite! Hosta looks great.

Celebration of Angels is one of my all-time favorites, and your picture does her justice. The chartreuse hosta in the background picks up the bright green COA throat.

Thanks for the information about Blue Mouse Ears as well.

I always like Patricia Snyder Mem whenever I see it, but I love Viva Pinata. Don't think I've seen that one before. Your hosta is lovely, I have/had it in my garden. I don't keep up with my hosta much, either a bigger plant is overshadowing it, or I lost it overwinter.

I just noticed in the line about your hosta that it's the only one you look forward to blooming. I thought I was the only one that preferred hostas naked. I prefer to cut off the flower stems before blooming, but will occasionally leave some of the white flowers.

Everyone's PSM looks whiter than mine. Is it my soil or do pictures make it look less yellow? I like mine anyway but do wish it was whiter.

Anyone with experiences with Viva Pinata in cold zones? A friend in zone 5 said it did not grow well for him.

PSM looks so pretty that I may have to find that one and add it to the garden. That splash of color in the center is really eye catching.

mantis, I've had Viva Pinata for some years now, and it has done well for me. All my Gossard DL's need to be divided right now, because they are pretty vigorous and are crowding each other.

Thanks for the feedback.
Chris, Viva Pinata is listed as a yellow. It's a very nice soft yellow like the picture. I really don't like hosta flowers - especially the lilac ones - and cut them off.
jkayd - I really have been growing PSM for two years. Over that time the flower consistently blooms the color you see above.

I love Blue Mouse Ears and have several clumps of it. It multiplies really quickly for me - I've given away a few pieces to friends and family too. I have Mighty Mouse also and really like that as well. Viva Pinata is one I saw recently somewhere on line and really admired the picture of... it's on my want list. Your picture of it is lovely.
