Flower Frenzy, how about the background.....oh I see what it is, from the picture of Fleet Week.....it is a glass-top table with a hole for umbrella pole. Well, I thought you had a really great tray for watering hosta with a drain........duhhhh.

I'll be back later to post my F's......all those Fragrant This and Fragrant That....and a blooming Fujibotan for DonB to warm his heart on this cold Colorado day.

Well heck, I'll just give Fujibotan it's own post.

Wow - some of the ones already posted are so much better than mine I'm ashamed to show them. LOVE that Foxfire Palm Springs and am hoping mne looks like that someday. Maybe mine will make someone else with first year plants feel better. (-:

What, no Frost Giant yet? I can't believe it.

Here he is, in the fall, starting to suffer a bit and head down for the winter. I seemed to have taken many more fall pics this year than anything else. Planning to load up this spring with pics, though. I'm going to be more prepared for the alphabet next year!

RE: Hosta F 2013

All those mature Frances Williams' pictures do look lovely.

Great idea McTavish---combining the leaves of hosta to show seasonal change. You did it so well I almost missed it!


 o
RE: Hosta F 2013

Don, The Hostapedia comments that "'Fragrant Blue' is notable for its good blue foliage and fragrant flowers and was the first registered cultivar to combine the two." Mine has a mild fragrance.


 o
RE: Hosta F 2013

I bought this hosta way before I ever became a hostaholic. It has done really well for me even though, I am sure, it is almost suffocating with maple tree roots. This spring I will be coming to its rescue and freeing it.


 o
RE: Hosta F 2013

Hey, NHL, how did YOU get the fragrant one?? ; P


 o
RE: Hosta F 2013

Frances Williams - Even though these FW's get only about 2 hrs of early morning sun they still leaf burn and will be replaced with Olive Bailey Langdon.


 o
RE: Hosta F 2013

Squirejohn,

It's not sun that gives FW that Spring desiccation that you see. It's wind and lack of water that dries it out. FW can be finicky, but when you find the right spot and leave it alone it can be lovely. Notice that it's mostly the margins that show the desiccation. This past Spring was windy and dry and I saw that on a number of different golds this year. If you can get FW in a wind protected spot, it will look better.

Steve


 o
RE: Hosta F 2013

H.'Olive Bailey Langdon' can also burn. I had one in 2 hrs sun with watering, and it burned. I moved that one to shade. My FW show some burns in September, but which hostas are still perfect then. In an older AHS Journal I just read that one famous hybridizer did most of his work with FW using its positive traits, so figure. Bernd

RE: Hosta F 2013

This hosta (in my opinion) deserves the title of 2010 Hosta of the Year and the 2013 Benedict Garden Performance Medal it was awarded.


 o
RE: Hosta F 2013

And then can look great until late fall = winner in my books!


 o
RE: Hosta F 2013

Don, my Fragrant Blue comes from a long time hostaholic who now divides his own hosta and sells them occasionally. But I have noticed that Hallson Gardens says that the FB it sells is mildly fragrant also.

What a beautiful show this hosta puts on in the spring!


 o
RE: Hosta F 2013

Steve - Thanks for the info on FW. I have four and all are pretty much protected from the wind. This spring I'll give them plenty of water and see what happens.

Bernd - Thanks, I didn't know that about OBL. I'll follow Steve's advise and see how that works My FW's are pretty large being some of the first I bought (1989) and would rather not move them. I do however have to reset two in TEX-R fabric due to invasive (insert cuss words here) tree roots.

First Frost after 2 years. Seems kind of slow but by the looks of others here, it will be worth the wait.

RE: Hosta F 2013

Frances Williams, crowded by the ferns. I've had these for at least 8 years. I've divided them a couple times, moved several times and have never looked any better than they do here. Going to move them again in the spring and will give them lots and lots of water. If that doesn't help they are going to the back of the woods for the deer.


 o
RE: Hosta F 2013

Old dirt, that's how FW looks for me, too. It comes up with brown splotches. We don't have any deer here, though.
