Alttara Scheer, another hybridizer and her hosta
I was looking at some of my hosta the last couple of days, and mentally noted some of those surging ahead with vigor were from Alttara Scheer. You can frequently find her introductions at Naylor Creek, but elsewhere as well.
The one which really stirred my soul was her Annabel Lee, new to me in 2013. Gary at Naylor suggested it, since I have a lot by Miss Alttara already.
So if you have any to picture here from this year or previously, chime in.
Annabel Lee taken this week
and also a view of the petioles beneath those leaves
Funky Monkey...I know other folks have this one, it goes through a lot of color changes
Stephan King is not registered so far, but appropriately it has bloody red petioles. First shot when it arrived because you can see the petiole color
and a few days ago as it emerges
Jaws....rippled and serrated leaf edges. Mine is getting there
Madam....she dominates the field here.
Maya Tritone is a chartreuse leaf that develops creamy streaks between the veins more pronounced as the season progresses. Here it is last July. I don't have a picture of her this year, must make a note to get one soon to document her color changes
Cold Heart has a bit of ice blue overlay in early spring, and it has a fairly large leaf. Another one I must look for to get an early spring photo.
I also have Boyz Toy and Scallion Pancakes. Love Boyz Toy, which she named for the Boyz at Naylor Creek. And, while I love Scallion Pancakes, it has given me much trouble growing. If anyone has pictures of those and any others please share with us. Thanks.
