I normally don't bother looking at their hosta but something made me walk by them today. What did I find? Two hosta on my list!! I'm a big fan if Striptease and any sports so I was surprised to see Gypsy Rose and Kiwi Full Monty! I'll quarantine them for a year but at $8 each I couldn't pass them up!

Great size too and great price

RE: Home Depot find

Where are you located? I also saw those two as well as, let's see...Fragrant Dream, Stilleto, Guardian Angel, Seducer, Alex Summers...very nice sizes. Always tempting! Amazing Huechera selection at the big box stores this year, too.

I'm in Northern VA Jadie88

I'm Baltimore area...seems a good region for superstore nurseries! I've noticed our HD stock is sourced from Bell nursery in Burtonsville. Our proximity doesn't hurt, I suppose. Beautiful plants you picked up.

Just an FYI, but one year quarantine isn't enough. I bought my Striptease somewhere else (not a big box store) and planted it in a pot in the ground as my quarantine because that cultivar is known for having a high infection rate. It looked fine after 16 months, so I removed the pot. It showed signs of HVX two years later. HVX can take a lot of time to show, so just make sure you stay aware.
