RE: Lakeside Ripples

Very nice. Did you get this from Rob?
Where is he these days I wonder?

I like my Lakesides, especially LS Pebbles. This one you have is certainly piecrusted and very correctly named.

RE: Lakeside Ripples

Great pic. Great Hosta. I got an OS division from Hosta Amour this past Spring. It doesn't look that good. Yet.


RE: Lakeside Ripples

I actually got this plant from Rux Gardens,a nursery just a little north of where I live. It was a very small one-eyed plant when I bought it,but this is the best it has ever looked. Thanks for lookin'! Phil

RE: LS Ripples

Sorry I didn't answer your question, moccasin. I planted this hosta way back in 2006,before Rob bought Lakeside,so I guess it was Mary Chastain's place then. This plant was so tiny,leaves would cover it up and I would have to look for it. What got my attention about this hosta was a pic of it on Bob Solberg's newsletter,which showed a young girl hiding under it,and the caption"so large you could hide a small child under it". It's not one of his introductions,but he sells other hostas. Sorry the explanation was so long. Phil

RE: Lakeside Ripples

Yep. some that Bob Solberg introduced I've gotten other places, and vice versa from him. Thanks for the story.

RE: Lakeside Ripples

Here is my new Lakeside Ripples. Just planted last week. Hope it grows to look as good as the pics above.

This one looks very similar to Clovelly. Does anyone have them both for comparison?
