Here is a pic from this morning,after the rain last night. Phil
I am jealous you have plants already leafed out. I only have pips at this point.
I love your garden, keep posting pics!
Great picture. Can't wait to see that here in Ontario.
You have the best Sagae I've ever seen. You'll have to get us a picture with something to show scale on those leaves!
I'm hoping mine shows a little more maturity in it's leaves this year, it should be a nice size, there's already 16 eyes up.
Here's mine last year.
Gorgeous picture of a gorgeous hosta. Still waiting for my Sagae (acquired last year) to show some pips. I am crossing my fingers! Something tells me that I am going to love that hosta more and more each year.
Love the water droplets on the leaves.
Gesila,I posted this pic last year,but essentially,this is about the same as this year. Phil
Your Sagae's are fantastic. I am, however, no longer jealous of anyone. It is 74ÃÂº F today and I see a couple of hosta tips peaking out.
Thanks for sharing.
Now I remember that picture Phil!
Yours is very nice,also Gesila,but yours is in more light,therefore more eyes and more leaves! Phil
My new-in-2012 Sagae, star of the show (except for Mama plantaginea), is doing great this year here. I'm using his pot and Krossa Regal and Elegans to weight the base of a big shade umbrella for a large display of hosta.
I guess Phil's Sagae is a landmark hosta for me, I could recognize that particular plant just about anywhere. Hopefully, mine will just as much a standout. This picture taken 4/28.
Yeah,Mocc,it is an easily recognized hosta! Yours is well on its way to be a specimen plant! I was in my local nursery yesterday,and they had some beautiful ones in one gallon pots for only $9.95. It was all I could do to keep from picking up another one! I opted for another plant called Katy Q.,which is now residing in its new home in the garden. They also had Titanic,which is a sport of Sum and Sub. I think that one may find its way to the garden some day,as I love S&S sports! Phil
As Soon as I typed that lastt response,I realized I had spelled Katie Q. wrong! It is Katie,not Katy. I can spell,I just can't type! Phil
I agree, even though I'm a rookie, Sagae is a standout for me too.
Last evening, while watching a program, the host was walking down a sidewalk in the intro. As he walked and gave his monologue to his right was, what I believe to be, a huge Sagae. The hosta in question (Sagae?) came up to his waist in height and the host was a tall man.
Surprised, I rewound the recording and played it again. It sure looked like Sagae.
