being what i presume is an old hippie ... he is known for naming a lot of his own plants with rock and roll names .... lets call this the lightening round.. and list some ...

i can think of satisfaction...

i am wondering about maggie may ...

and i am sure there are many others.. of which i am now blanking.. since i started typing....

and i would prefer we play the game.. before someone pulls out a list by don or some such ... maybe he can make a new list.. if he never thought of this one.. of which.. i doubt .. lol ...

sooo.. for now.. off the cuff... can you add some rock and roll names????

ken

I'm thinking he has more not registered, which makes it harder to play this game. I did not realize he gave us Satisfaction, which is a great hosta
Hosta 'Satisfaction'

From the ones in the AHS Registry, I spy
Angel Eyes
Barracuda (oh be STILL my Heart!)
Bohemian Rhapsody
Cathy's Clown
Dreamboat Annie (I think he likes HEART--so do I)
Lovely Rita
Miss American Pie
Mustang Sally
Purple Rain (hmmm, Prince, and I should look into this one)
Surfer Girl
Tupelo Honey (I have it of course, Van Morrison fan here)
Uncle Albert

What I want to know, where is Stevie Nicks and Belladonna?
Great song, great name to give a big fragrant hosta.

Here is a link that might be useful: Miss American Pie..Don McLean

'Purple Haze' and 'Bell Bottom Blues'

Revolution
Rock and Roll

RE: Chic @ bridgewoods rock and roll names

Purple Haze....now where did you find that was a Wasitis plant? I missed it totally, and is Revolution his too? Wow. That expands the list beyond the 2 pages on AHS Registry.

This is his, Purple Passion.....but not a song that I recall. It has meaning to me though....my college had the PUrples and the Golds in competition. The Golds were Lions....how boring. And the Purples were....(are you ready for this)....PURPLE COWS. So there was a lot of Purple Passion on campus.


 o
RE: Chic @ bridgewoods rock and roll names

It's not, Mocc. Neither is Bell Bottom Blues. I guess I misunderstood Ken's post. I was thinking Ken started off mentioning Chick's plants, but then asked, 'can you add some rock & roll names?' I thought he meant hosta rock n' roll names in general. My bad, I hereby disqualify my answers and withdraw my opportunity for lightning round.

Please, 'Carry On'.

 o
RE: Chic @ bridgewoods rock and roll names

I'm with Don on that---thought it was just additional rock & roll names.

Ken, can you clarify?


 o
RE: Chic @ bridgewoods rock and roll names

I thought it was rock and roll names of hosta.

Now, I'm confused.

RE: Chic @ bridgewoods rock and roll names

i dont care.. if you guys are having fun ...

but i was being specific to chic ...

i have never met him .. he is one of those nursery owners who does NOT travel far and wide ... in season .... or out of season ... the MI groups USED TO pay such.. to travel to talk in winter ... maybe he came and i missed it ... and i dont ever recall him at hosta college.. etc ....

but i think he has quite an eye.. for offering new plants that are actually different enough to be great additions to the hosta family ...

i just figured.. if i somehow stroked him.. he would send me plants.. lol.. no thats an outright lie.. lol ..

does moc satisfaction look right.. maybe its just the wet leaves and yellowish pic ... and early leaves ... isnt it supposed to be darker green???? .. i bet its just the pic... as moc has this sorta love affair with these darn plants... lol ... a mother always knows her own babies... lol ..

anyway.. as you were ... have fun ..

RE: Chic @ bridgewoods rock and roll names

Ken, I'm glad you made your statement about my Satisfaction. It was actually my Satisfaction NOID, not purchased as such, but was one which came from PDN in 2010 in my first order. My intro to this forum was trying to identify what actually arrived in that my initial hosta order EVER.

It was the top name for my NOID, and I had on its label, Satisfaction NOID. So, could be you are right. I have never felt totally SATISFIED....."I can't get no"....if you will....using that name for this plant.

Here is the real one, which I purchased from Hornbaker in 2012. If I had known Wasitis originated it, I'd have gone to Bridgewood for it. On left is the NOID, on right is the Hornbaker purchase. Taken October 2012
H. 'Satisfaction' 1 and 2

Here are the pair again in June 2013

And here is the NOID Satisfaction blooming on April 1, 2012

Revisiting my old wound, my first NOID.
Does this shed new light on old windows? (That's a Chris Rea album too)

And BKay, I miss hearing Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughn day and night on the radio like they play down in Texas.Never grow tired of his sound.

RE: Chic @ bridgewoods rock and roll names

Oops, I am not the song police here, just wanted to ask if they were Wasitis hosta, which was my reading of the question. I jump to conclusions a lot, and did not think any of yours were "wrong" but just asked if Wasitis what whositis. :)

More the merrier, right? We're talking R&R here.

RE: Chic @ bridgewoods rock and roll names

Then stay off of my 'Blue Suede Shoes'.

'Smokey Tokey' has got to be a Bob Marley tune...or it should be...

Don B.


 o
RE: Chic @ bridgewoods rock and roll names

I made a mistake here.
Purple Passion is NOT a Wasitis hosta, although Bridgewood sells it. Herb Benedict is credited with Purple Passion.


 o
RE: Chic @ bridgewoods rock and roll names

Well, 'Little Town Flirt' was my "playing by the rules" contribution, but now that we're letting just any old rockin hosta on the thread, I've gotta throw in 'Sergeant Pepper'

Photo is not mine (probably one of ya'lls!), as mine was already half dormant when I picked it up last fall.


 o
RE: Chic @ bridgewoods rock and roll names

Well, 'Good Golly Miss Molly', how does your 'Crocodile Rock'...

With all these 'Good Vibrations' this is 'Money Honey' and you won't be 'Singing the Blues'....

 o
RE: Chic @ bridgewoods rock and roll names

You're good, jadie. You know, 'Sergeant Pepper' is also a Chick Wasitis hosta! : )

Don B.


 o
RE: Chic @ bridgewoods rock and roll names

Ah, of course it is! I bought 'Sergeant Pepper' from Bridgewood, and now I remember reading in the description that it was one of their first introductions. Somewhere along the line I got it into my head it was Bill Meyer's...I mixed it up with his similarly variegated 'Luna Moth.'

Thank you for pointing that out. I'm really looking forward to seeing Sergeant Pepper this year. It multiplied nicely and is coming up with five pips. I like that soft Spring variegation which sharpens over the growing season. It also had an especially bright fall look.

Mocc, I thought you were talking about Purple Passion, the drink. (That's been a while.)

You're right about the radio and Stevie Ray Vaughn. I heard 'Pride and Joy' it the day my Don R hosta arrived. I never hear the song now, that I don't see the hosta in my mind.
