WOW! This order knocked my socks off!!

mbug_gwAugust 15, 2013

Harbor Lane Gardens ( Jim - iodithe) order came today and I was in awe of the contents.
I couldn't believe the size of the box to begin with.
This is what came out...almost look like golf clubs

Fragrant Fire Paradise Power....to get a size perspective, they are on a 4 foot deck container and almost take up the whole length

Paradise Joyce Regal Promenade

Had to run around and find containers big enough for the roots. Ended up borrowing two from my neighbor's grandchildren (....can you guess which ones?)

Beautiful streaking on RegalPromenade

I couldn't be happier with the Hosta. These pictures don't do them justice. The whole process with Jim was a pure pleasure.
Thanks Jim!

Man,those plants ought to take right off and start growing,right after planting! They look more like OS plants,than those grown potted. Good growing! Phil

(humble shrug... glad they went to a good home!)

Sharp eyes will have noted that there is an error... like an idiot, somebody knew Mike selected Paradise Joyce and Paradise Glory - so he was thinking maybe the bonus plant should be Paradise Power and got that on his brain. But since Mike has quite a bit of sun, he got Fragrant Fire as a bonus instead.

But that plant in the pic isn't Paradise Power - which is Marco's margined sport of Sun Power. That one is the one Mike asked for - Paradise Glory - which is Marco's (pretty sure tetraploid) sport of Paul's Glory. [I think it is identical to St. Paul from Shady Oaks - I can't tell any difference in the two - excellent plant!]

I received my golf clubs today also and picked 5 at Grandpa's house. It's like Christmas at the Smith house, at least for me! Better pictures to come, if you don't mind.

I really like them and I really like your selection too. It gets me closer to collecting all of the Fragrant Bouquet family. After some research i think the second one from the right is Fragrant Dream. Looks almost identical to FB, but is a lot darker in the center.

...Honey Hill Wrinkled Rainslicker..not on sport list, but shows as a sport on database

...Mardi Gras...I like it too!

Ah, man!......
Those are all lovely.
And, how is our Jim holding up out there? Honey, you take it easy.

The ones I received in July early on are doing beautifully. It is difficult to say which I like the best, because it's all a matter of which one I'm looking at when you ask!

Tiajuana Brass is awesome, St. Paul is, Kiwi Full Monty, Striptease, Summer Lovin, Summer Serenade, Black Hills, LS Lollipop, several species because I do love seeing where hosta started.......I cannot remember the all offhand...I am still delighted daily by the ones I got from you.
Thank you much, Jim

Here is St. Paul in my garden, with a new flush of leaves.
