Hottsy Tottsy......and others

So, I was one of the few nurseries in my area that carry hosta (we do have big box stores, but i try and avoid those if possible ) and I found several hosta I hadn't heard of. While that is nothing new, I did notice that all of the hosta are from Monrovia.

I worry terribly about HVX- but I am not super clear on how to watch for it. Any advice as far as plants from Monrovia? This seems like one of the brands I had seen a lot at the large chain stores, so it worried me a bit. I am not back east near all those marvelous nurseries;)

And, as far as the Hottsy Tottsy...anyone have that one?

Looks like a nice mid sized hosta developed by Monrovia. Monrovia is one of the country's premier wholesale growers so I hope they are making sure it is virus free.

It should be OK. If Monrovia were selling diseased plants we'd know about it by now. They're not a bottom end of the market outfit. So they should be fine.

Gabby, I have Hottsy Tottsy, planted in 09 - substance is a little thin. I am still evaluating as it matures.

Sounds great to me. I am glad to hear that Monrovia should be safe as we have so few nurseries in this area that carry hosta. This year they have lots of different hosta that I have not seen here before, I'm going to have to pace myself!!!!!

I picked up Pineapple Upside Down Cake while out of town recently, it is just lovely!

Paul,

What's that blue and green scalloped edged Hosta in front of Hotsy Totsy?

Steve, pic is from August and the hosta is Golden Meadows. It starts cream/white in center.

It's a nice plant when it's yellow, but that period is short lived.
