Hosta Dino....

I'm thinking about getting Dino,which is variegated sport of T-Rex. Does anyone here grow it,and if so,how is it doing? Phil

Naylor Creek lists it as M, so it probably will not get as big as TRex which is listed as VL. But my TRex is growing very slowly too. Bernd

Well,my T-Rex has grown very fast,so I thought it would grow well for me. Jim's Hostas has it,as well, for the same price. Phil

Does this mean you are going to buy a hosta through the mail Phil?

The hosta library has a picture of a leaf close-up with a man's hand on it for size scale, and the leaf is HUGE. It may be a giant, Phil.

Yeah,Gesila,maybe so! I don't usually order mail order,but it's doubtful that it will ever appear in my local nursery. Boy,you have come out of hybernation! Take care. Phil

I talked with Gary at Naylor...he said Dino will be smaller than T Rex...which makes sense since it has a wide, white margin...

There are some other very large variegated hostas, but some are not easily available...like Big Kahuma, Bev and Dave, for example...Earth Angel and other Blue Angel sports are big...Woolly Mammoth gets big...Victory is very large...Nickie Sue Axmear is supposed to be very large...and then there are all the variegated sports of Sum and Substance...and there's a sport of Jurassic Park with a wide gold center that will be coming out...
