The Anything but Smooth-leaved Hostas Thread.........

paul_in_mn(4b)July 12, 2014

....some call them rugose, corrugated, seer-suckered, bumpled, wrinkled, creased, contorted, crinkled, puckered, or dimpled....whatever you call it, lets see yours......

A couple to get it started-

Blueberry Muffin

Vanessa, that LS Prophecy Fulfilled is wowzers......lost mine in a pot over winter. Thunderbolt is just amazing.

irawon, very nice Blue Hawaii - mine is adapting to added sun (neighbor removed some trees) and pips eaten early so no pics this year. Leaves seem to be smaller in the sun, but color has been good.

I love all your pictures, you have such a good eye for color combinations and I can see I need to get some more solid color hostas.

Paul, I was thinking that Golden Meadows should be on the list...it isn't. The colour on yours is stupendous. I have dinner plate leaves on mine this year, which really surprised me.

Hippie, I've been coveting a L. Prophecy or L. Prophecy Fulfilled but it'snot avalaible here. Love your LPF. Is it blue earlier in the season?

I'm going to show one of my no name hostas. I have several of these that I grew from a package of seeds. I had visions of getting a variety of hosta, but of course that didn't happen. I know better now. But I like these blue corrugated ones.
So please forgive me, I know you don't like the no names. Maybe we can give it a name?

There is some serious hosta beauty in this thread. I love the rugose and robust, you can just about FEEL THE ENERGY pulsing through those leaves.

Old Glory. I got it from Hallson's in the fall of 2013 and put it in a pot sunk into the ground for a while. It was inelegantly transferred to this hole on a mild day in the middle of the winter and it has not looked back. It is kicking azz.

Midas Touch was rugose right away, not like some other hostas, where the rugosity takes time to develop.

I am usually just a lurker here but this post caught me. I think because I don't have a single smooth leaved hosta.

Kate, it seems you like the long slender leaves with pointy ends. Have a look at Harpoon if you do not have it. It is a world class hosta, Paul in MN has a gorgeous Harpoon and that is what I hope mine looks like when it matures.

SouthCountryGuy, once you let hostas grab your gardener's heart, there is no turning back. It is a condition most everyone here willingly trades for the same-old-same-old in the garden. Cannot beat a good hosta.

MaggiePie, hello up there in the cold country. I love the gold leaves on your Frances Williams. If there is dessication I sure do not see much. That is a big hosta!

@
Irawon, I got my Lakeside Prophecy and Lakeside Prophecy Fulfilled from Hosta Choice Gardens last year.

Here's a pic of it today.
LP has not done much this year, I think it might have almost died during the winter in garage.

@moc, thanks for the greeting, my FW doesn't have any dessication so far, which is surprising as I keep forgetting to water it. I gave half of it to my neighbour some years ago and it is 3 times as big as mine.

Jo, how long have you grown your Jimmy Crack Corn? I've had mine since 2012 and it does not have the same shape leaves as yours, nor any corrugation to speak of. I'm concerned.

However, I looked at the HLibrary and first picture looks like mine. Second picture looks like yours. So.....they change that much when they mature? Or, is yours still a young thing?

It is a sport of Piedmont Gold, supposed to be a ML sized plant. Mine seems to be stuck in the small/medium range. Of course, yours seems to be in the ground, mine in a pot. It does make a difference to some hosta. This might be one of them. It was until this spring in one of the poorly draining pots with built-on saucers, even with holes drilled all in it. JCC is one of many I had to bare root and start over this spring, in new pots with mix containing about half pine bark.

Maggiepie, thanks for the info about Hosta Choice. Your LPF is beautiful and I've been thinking that since it has the rugosity of LP, why get both if you have limited space in your beds.

Lakeside Foaming Sea and Mount Tom (both on the rugose list) finally bulked up this spring.

Mocc, thank you for noticing Jimmy Crack Corn!

Yes, it is now growing in the ground, a little over a month. When I bought it the summer of 2013 it already had been grown on a year in its nursery pot at Hosta Fever. As you can see from that pic, the leaves were still fairly adolescent although they were large...rippled edge apparent already.

It remained in its nursery pot over winter until early this June, when I finally planted it. It receives direct sun from sun- up until 2:00 p.m. and obviously is very happy there. I love the substance of this one and it is taking on more gold. That colour is bang on!

>> first pic is current, in ground
>> second pic of JCC growing in pot - leaves looking same as in ground
>> third pic of 2013 new acquisition but showing some characteristics

I hope I've answered your questions, Mocc. It was the gracefully rippled edge and colour, and size of leaf that drew my attention last year. It's attributes are unusual in a golden-yellow hosta. I just had to have it! :-)

Yes, Jimmy Cracked Corn looks totally different in your garden. I'm stunned at the way MINE looks so narrow leafed and not rugose at all. I got it in 2012, you'd think it would be more advanced than it is.

Thanks, Jo. I'll keep your pictures in my clippings to remind myself to watch more closely.
