Phil that is one choice looking Hosta in pristine condition. I'm assuming you found that at a local nursery?

Wow, that's a nice specimen of a really interesting hosta. Good Choice! (I'm so jealous of people who can buy pretty hosta locally.)

A real looker!

RE: Old Glory...

Yeah,it came from a nursery just north of where I live. I've found many nice plants there over the years. They didn't have the Empress Wu that I got recently,but he always has some nice hostas. Most of the ones I saw recently were ones I already have,but I always like his plants. Phil

Bkay- In a way that is good (not finding cool looking hostas locally). You (and I) would be filling our cars with them. I get most of mine bare root and w/o and leaves, just little white eyes in March. Then I say...why did I get this one? Most of the time I have a good answer, but not always.Just think if you lived near Chris Wilson at Hallson Gardens. Argggggggggggggggh.

Phil - Have you visited Rux Gardens this year? Your H. Old Glory is gorgeous.

RE: Old Glory...

Yeah,I have,Plantbug. Where do you think I got Old Glory? Greg said this plant never sold well,and the one I have was really root-bound! I also got Lakeside Lagoon, Spring Fling, and a Japanese Painted fern. Greg said Bob Solberg will be back next July,but not this year,since he moved his nursery to Franklinton. Thanks for the comments! Phil

Don't you just love the fern mixed in with the hosta! I got my Japanese painted fern and it has doubled in this past month
Great finds

RE: Old Glory...
