Hottsy Tottsy......and others

gabbygardnerApril 24, 2012

So, I was one of the few nurseries in my area that carry hosta (we do have big box stores, but i try and avoid those if possible ) and I found several hosta I hadn't heard of. While that is nothing new, I did notice that all of the hosta are from Monrovia.

I worry terribly about HVX- but I am not super clear on how to watch for it. Any advice as far as plants from Monrovia? This seems like one of the brands I had seen a lot at the large chain stores, so it worried me a bit. I am not back east near all those marvelous nurseries;)

And, as far as the Hottsy Tottsy...anyone have that one?

Looks like a nice mid sized hosta developed by Monrovia. Monrovia is one of the country's premier wholesale growers so I hope they are making sure it is virus free.

It should be OK. If Monrovia were selling diseased plants we'd know about it by now. They're not a bottom end of the market outfit. So they should be fine.

Paul,

What's that blue and green scalloped edged Hosta in front of Hotsy Totsy?

Sounds great to me. I am glad to hear that Monrovia should be safe as we have so few nurseries in this area that carry hosta. This year they have lots of different hosta that I have not seen here before, I'm going to have to pace myself!!!!!

I picked up Pineapple Upside Down Cake while out of town recently, it is just lovely!

Steve, pic is from August and the hosta is Golden Meadows. It starts cream/white in center.

It's a nice plant when it's yellow, but that period is short lived.
