A sport of Fickle Blue Genes

hostasmith(5)August 21, 2014

Here is one that makes me very happy. I bought a large H. Fickle Blue Genes earlier in the year and split it with a lady in town. We each ended up with two divisions. This is what one of my divisions is starting to become. The other still looks like FBG.

not if he wanted a streaked breeder like FBJ ...

i was wondering who was selling that one ...

lots of white in that enter.. sublime.. but i wonder how growable it is ... looks like many a GE that i killed ... white-wise

He said he still has a division of Fickle Blue Jeans so this is just a bonus :)

I know Bev Stegman has or had a very nice medio-sport of 'Fickle Blue Genes' that was a large multi division plant....not sure if she ever done anything with it, but I can ask

Hi Devon! That is a terrific division of FBJ! I hope it grows good and strong for you! Just feed it your biotone and it will be doing cartwheels in no time!
Beauty!

That one started as an eye with a single small leaf and has gained that much since June. I will get a picture of the other section I kept, I just put it in a 2 gallon pot.

I happened to fall into a lot of really good luck and ended up with some nice breeders and a few that are not in many gardens.

Here is a picture of a leaf from some Mister Red Genes that I bought.

It has been a really good summer for my hosta addiction.

Here is the other piece of my FBG. It is in a 2 gallon pot with some Sea Prize and Colorful Sister behind it and a pot of my all green So Sweet and Pebbled Jade under it to the left.

Like I said before, it has been a really good summer for me as far as Hostas are concerned!
