Hosta Santa/Elf

Teresa_MNFebruary 3, 2013

How many of you remember the hosta santa/elf? Gosh - that goes back a few years...... at least 6 years. I mailed seeds to a number of people...... I am wondering if any of those seeds grew into something you still have in your garden.

Here is a picture of something I received from a hosta elf named caliloo.

I think the funniest thing sent in the Hosta Santa mailings was a Pez dispenser that looked like an evil elf! Andrea/Ken - remember that?

What are those, future 'Popcorn' seedlings?

I know, it's a pretty corny joke.

purple verticated elf [whatever, i aint looking it up] ... is still struggling as 'a' division .. and i wonder if it will come back this year after the heat and drought last year ... thanks for sending me YOUR problem plant.. lol .. but dont hold your breath that you will ever get a piece back.. lol ... unless you want it all back ... its a real PIA ...

have not seen much of the bald fuzzy headed kid around here .. she lost interest after her garden was decimated by something or another .. in fact .... i think it was more like.. one thing 'after' another ..... hopefully she will come back ..

Ken, are you talking about the lady who did the Hosta Forum FAQs?

yeah.. she came onto GW when my kids were babes.. and the only show i would NOT allow them to watch was that crybaby afraid of his own shadow.. whiny piece of carp kid .... calliou ..

her name is a african/Caribbean stew [my word].. but i used to bug her by calling her the bald headed kid ... lol ..

and i am doing it here.. to try to lure her back to defend her culinary namesake.. lol ...

as to the FAQ.. she would just copy/paste parts of posts ... on things that seemed to be repeated over.. and over ...
