A tiny Emerald Ruff Cut. Your first year ERC looks about three times bigger than mine, SquireJohn.

Eskimo Pie has been in for at least three years and just barely hangs on. There are fewer leaves than when it was planted, but they are getting bigger, so maybe there's hope.

Earth Angel in 2012. Last spring the weather went from the 40s to over 100 in one day, and almost everything that gets sun fried, including EA.

I was surprised to find so many "E"s, and I managed to miss Empress Wu.

RE: Hosta E 2013

Lots of great E Hostas. Lee, that Emerald Ruff Cut is great. I had heard it was difficult to grow. Some great Earth Angels out there too.

My Earth Angel in year 3. It's getting there.

Empress Wu year 2. I have read that this one really takes off after the first few years. Have patience with the small ones.

EDOP 512. I really need to name this one as it's my best streaked breeder. It gives a large percentage of streaked seedlings and seems to allow the best features of the pollen parents. Any suggestions?

RE: Hosta E 2013

Bernd, that Emily could possibly be mis tag? Looks more like Ginko Craig :)
Thank Steve, ERC is a beautiful hosta too bad it has spring desiccation reputation.


 o
RE: Hosta E 2013

Do you have the names of your streakers parents? Always a good starting point. If not, you could go topical and name it Smaug - it looks like a pretty fierce hosta!


 o
RE: Hosta E 2013

Melati, you are right, I have both h.'Ginko Craig' and 'Emily Dickinson' growing next to each other, recorded them in the wrong sequence, so you will see it again under 'G'. I have no picture of Emily. Thanks! Bernd

Steve, how about hosta Liquid Gold as a name for your streaker :-) It really is a beautiful hosta!

Wow!! Just added a bunch to my "would like to have" list! And both sugested names for the streaker are great, I would love either one!! This next spring I have to start taking pix, got a new camera,now just have to learn how to use it! Along with the 12 or so other things I want to do . Does this madness never end? P.S. The Ellen joke is funny, every time I think of it, I start laughing.

RE: Hosta E 2013

SquireJohn, I think the Empress spends a lot of time growing a big root system to support her huge superstructure. Don't despair, she'll get there.

I have five of these hosta. My oldest two were acquired in 2011. Not quite as photogenic as the others have posted, but here it is.


 o
RE: Hosta E 2013

I do love those leaves though.

Beautiful Eskimo Pie melati! I am admiring all the El Nino's too. Mine has been quite slow in growth. And I am putting Emerald Ruff Cut on my wish list.


 o
RE: Hosta E 2013

Moccasinlanding - I think your Edge of Night is mis-labeled, since it should be solid dark green.

RE: Hosta E 2013

melati, my h.'Eskimo Pie' also only has 2 or 3 leaves, growing since 2009 in my garden. It seems to only sit there, getting regulat water though. H. 'Dancing in the Rain' is actually shrinking. Bernd

RE: Hosta E 2013

Paul, thanks for bringing it to my attention about Edge of Night. I'll look into what happened, and if not solved then I'll make a new NOID thread.

I thought the name was appropriate for the way it looked though, because dark dark midleaf, and a dark green margin as well. Well HAH! Fooled me, it sure did.
