2012 Top 100 Hosta Poll

Posted by paul_in_mn 4b (My Page) on
Mon, Jul 2, 12 at 12:32

This past winter there was some discussion that it was time for another Top 100 Hosta Poll. Last one was in July 2008.

So let's get one started -

Please submit your selections (limit up to 20 hosta) in list form like below. Within your list, do not add rankings or descriptions, etc - I will cut and paste lists to tabulate, so extra info makes more work. We'll run the poll thru end of July and post results in August. In 2008 there were 246 hosta submitted and 709 votes .

Example (limit Up to 20 Hosta)

Blue Mouse Ears
Blue Angel
Liberty
Sagae
Cathedral Windows
June
. .
. .
. .

If you've been reading and not posting, now would be a good time to jump into the forum and express your opinion.

Thanks for participating.

Paul

RE: 2012 Top 100 Hosta Poll

ADDENDUM: The hostas on my list are listed in order of distance from my heart, with Little Treasure being my fav and Yellow Eyes being completely optional in my garden. It's doing quite well and actually flowering, but if it died, no boo-hoos here. It's just not, IMHO, very pretty.
