RE: 2014 Draft

Leaflover, what a nice round of draft choices.
Cannot find a mis-chosen plant in the bunch.

You will soon discover the fine qualities of Marilyn Monroe. It will have nice pinky petioles, a white back to the leaves which shows the ruffles on the petticoat....oops, she doesn't wear any! sorry I misspoke... but it is a thoroughly feminine hosta. It has good substance too, although not a rugose hosta.

This taken June 18, 2014. I might put her in more sun for the golden look she had last year. She is with Nancy and Dancing Queen.

Thanks for sharing your new players.

RE: 2014 Draft

Great picks! My favourites from your new additions are Hollywood Lights, Journey's End, Brother Stephan and Sugar and Spice. My dad has a Sugar and Spice that is to die for :)

RE: 2014 Draft

Leafover and Hippieindenial,
Invincible has really served me well over the years proving to be an extremely reliable and attractive hosta.The Sugar and Spice, therefore, grabbed my attention. Great looking plants!

RE: 2014 Draft

Looks like a banner year for draft picks. I, on the other hand, was rendered ineligible for being out of bounds (as in no space) and did not participate in the draft. Although, when winter damage of some other plants became apparent, I did manage to pick up 5 players in a trade for cash.

Always best to build through the draft....great additions to your lineup!

RE: 2014 Draft

TJ, I gather the ones you picked up for cash were free agents then.

BCHosta, I know what you mean about Invincible being a workhorse hosta. That and Invincible Spirit, one or the other, look to be responsible for two that I like....both fragrant.

White Triumphator has that look too...only....I cannot believe I did not take its picture today, I was looking right at it. I got two from Glenbrook this spring. I'll do it tomorrow for sure. Sorry..
