Guardian Angel

I think of Guardian Angel as my secret hosta. I'm probably the only one that has ever laid eyes on it because it's not really visible from the main part of my yard and garden....you pretty much have to be walking along the back fence to see it. It gets no direct sun, and only rain water. Sometimes I think I should move it somewhere to give it more love, but this spot seems to suit it. I think it's such a pretty hosta.

What a beauty! Guardian Angel is dear to me. Its the name of the adoption agency I was placed in some 43 years ago. Luckily for me they found the two best parents a girl could ever ask for. :) Hadn't thought about that of that until I saw this thread. Thanks for the beautiful picture and for enabling me to 'NEED' this hosta instead of just merely wanting it. :)

I am still searching for a good one of this hosta :)

RE: Guardian Angel

Coll, having it where it is mostly yourself sees it is right in keeping with the function of a Guardian Angel. Specific to YOU, so really private location is good.

Kate, it spoke to you, like some of mine do. :)

RE: Guardian Angel

I agree with you, Coll that it is very pretty. How old is yours now?

I traded with my neighbour last year...weeding for a piece of GA division she got from her neighbour. I am so amazed at its beauty. It has a lovely full shape and it will only get better.

RE: Guardian Angel

How cool that you have a neighbor to trade for something great like that.

Kate, I agree, you need to get this hosta!

I got this hosta in 2010. I stopped at a place that used to be my favorite nursery - very different stuff at this place with a lovely wooded path section with many shade plantings and sculptures. The owner had recently closed the retail aspect to focus on his landscaping business, but was still selling a few things one day a month. So he and I were chatting and I had picked out a couple of hostas to buy. He wanted to show me something up in the wooded section. So we were walking up the path and we passed a hosta planted on the left. I said, " oh that's a really nice Guardian
Angel". He was so impressed that I knew the name of it so he grabbed a shovel and cut me out a fat division right on the spot. GAve it to me free!

I got mine and then a surprise.....a seedling in that bed that does the same color change, but not as bright or as big. What are the chances of that?

Coll, a really nice story, and a special hosta.

Paula, I hope you see Jagd's post/offer!

Jagd51, lovely specimen and the seedling is outstanding!

RE: Guardian Angel

Jagd thank you so much for the offer, that is very kind of you. I don't get to Kingston too often (maybe 3 years ago was the last time) but my DH goes there every couple of months for business. He was just there last Friday!

Coll, I love that story!

It's a lovely hosta, the leaves look like watercolors to me.
