Afterglow arrived First Look Auction win

Moccasin(z9aMobileAL)May 18, 2012

And here it is, the lovely young thing I won in February, looking all fresh in her spring finery. I appreciate Miz Mary at Walters carrying her down to Shipping so she was well handled for her long trip to the deep south. Hosta people are really nice folk.

I look forward to seeing her grow up.

Nice one moc!

It's a sport of Climax. I'm wondering what the difference is. My Climax alway seems to get hit by wind and have his petioles broke. I probably need to move it.

Moc - after you posted about your Afterglow was followed by Gesila's Climax it seems everyone wouldn't touch this thread with a 10 foot pole.

Well not this old critter. Your Afterglow is a very lovely hosta. I am looking forward to seeing it all "growed up" as they say in Arkansas. Thanks for sharing.

And Gesila, why don't you cinch it up and show us a photo of your Climax so we know what you're talking about instead of letting minds on the "Dark Side" ponder.

Well, I tried to get Krossa Dressa, and I tried to get a high dolla Wheee! and I finally got the Afterglow. It was a neat auction. The auctioneer's spiel about each hosta included some of the topic you mention.

I think Afterglow has a very sweet relaxed look to it, don't you?

Absolutely!
I also went to get a high dolla Wheee! and couldn't float her price on my social security wages budget. Gesila must have been thinking of me, speaking of a lot of wind and broken petioles. I had to settle for a Sadi instead - Did you know Sadi's daddy was a Love Pat back in 2000?

Here you go Les.... third year hosta. I reviewed the pictures and it's come a long way! This one is very upright. And, I'll say no more.

It is truly a beautiful thing,Gesila! Now everything I will say is going to be taken two ways but I have to say it. I have just added Climax to my "Must Have" list.
