High Society

This is a June sport from Hans Hansen/Shady Oaks. Not a fast grower, but added a couple of eyes this year. Planted in 2009 and moved to garden expansion last year.

Early May

and 30 days later

Thanks for looking. Please add your pics.

Same age as Paul's. Also, one of my favorites. I love all the Halcyon/June derivatives.

I planted this one three summers ago and this year I almost lost it! I transplanted it to a pot and there has been some progress but I am not out of the woods yet.
I thought for sure that I had lost it but I am hoping :)

I too love the Halcyon/June family of hosta. The only downside for me with High Society and Remember Me is that slugs are attracted to the lighter centers and will make holes in the young leaves.

My High Society was bought in 2007 or 2008 as one eye. Up to seven this year. I have to move 'Blue Sliver' away from it a bit

Hi Paula - back to you on another thread - I live in London, but grew up in Blackstock long before there was a hosta nursery there! There seem to be lots of good sources of hostas in your area - some great opportunities for day trips.
