moccasinlanding recently stated that she wondered what was in everyone's wish list and I do too. I know mine changes daily as hh and many others posts more hosta photos. So what is in your WISH LIST? 10 max maybe per post. This will be fun and have a great grow day, Paula

PS: The only rule is you cannot own it at this exact moment.

Hosta wish list:
Golden Meadows
Summer Breeze
Dance With Me
Emerald Ruff Cut
Lakeside Cupcake
American Icon
Raspberry Sundae
North Wind
Unchained Melody

I have way more (as does everyone). Luckily, I have only these 10 priorities right now since I bought 3 off the list last week (Color Festival, Liberty and Golden Meadows). I have one more (and this is my way of sneaking it in) Captain Kirk had to be tossed for HVX last year and I'd like to replace him.

RE: Wish List

Ok TOP ten:

Lakeside Prophecy
Lakeside Frosted Mint
Green Sheen
Irish Luck
Potomac Pride

A list which changes and reshuffles daily. Waiting for the new Naylor Creek catalog.


RE: Wish List

I do keep a wish list, and I just read it. There are close to 100 hosta on that list.
I revise it once or twice a year, removing or adding hosta, often according to what I read from growers on this forum. It's fun to re examine it, decide for or against certain varieties. The list is free and flexible.
I use it on the rare occasions when I go hosta shopping, and it's great fun to find and indulge myself to a treat from my list.
I have close to 200 varieties now, and I add slowly and carefully. I'm out of room for the nonce.

RE: Wish List

ninamarie, you can do it - what are your top 10?

It will give the vendors on the HL Auction something to post and try to entice you over 200.


RE: Wish List

Oh mine changes all the time...

Rainbow's End
Dark Shadows
Devils Advocate
Blue Ivory
Ice Age Trail

RE: Wish List

Melissa, I notice you have Lonesome Dove on there. If you are looking for a really nice one similar coloring, take a look at Little Jay. Same variegation as Lonesome Dove but white.

Here is a shot of Little Jay with 3 pots containing 5 White Dove, having the reverse variegation of Lonesome Dove:


RE: Wish List

Thank you all for helping get my mind back into hosta gear. I really enjoyed your input. It seemed Rainbows End and Simply Sharon were the most sought after plants and I can see why. There were some real beauties listed there.

moccasin, American Sweetheart has done very good for me as has Lakeside Prophecy Fulfilled. I got them both as liners and they have more than doubled. Empress Wu in a pot? Have to be a big one.

Michelle the twist word was not maybe it is per. You were close lol. You can have as many posts as you wish the only rules are it has to be a new list and you cannot own it right now.

So as we all change our minds here is my new list, now just to find them on line:

Lakeside Paisley Print
Rainbows End
On Stage
Simply Sharon
Ice Age Trail
Guardian Angel
Moonlight Sonata
High Society
Cross Stitch
Viva Las Vegas

RE: Wish List

On Stage= try Green Mountain Hosta. I just got one from them, very reasonably too.

And the reason I was thinking hard about Empress Wu? I could not imagine it in a pot!!!!! hehehehehe

RE: Wish List

I hereby vote for 'thisismellisa' list as the most unique list.

I very much like this thread, and wish I had the time to expound on how many of these are worthy of note and further discussion, both positive and negative.

However, us 'up north' folk have a lot of visitors this time of year, since most of them are too timid to visit here when the snow is deep, and even us northern secludes types like some social interaction, we will be hosting visitors this week, so thanks for a very fun and interesting thread, but I don't see where I can find the time to properly comment on the many interesting mentions from all you fine folks.

Your mentions are sooooo intriguing, though,and I'd like so much to go into them further!

fwiw and thanks to all for the activity,


RE: Wish List

Jax, thank you for the info on American Sweetheart growing for you. I'll run it up to the Wish List instead of Watch.

LS Paisley Print and On Stage, on your Wish List, are due to arrive here this week....among others, I might add.

HH, enjoy the company. We'll hold the fort. Maybe like the inmates running the asylum?
