Jim Anderson wanted names of 5 favorite newer
hostas and 5 "potential shovel bait. If I use 1997 for a cut off as to new
and only include ones we are growing, my favorites would be:
Lakeside Looking Glass
If I go back to 96 and pick up two unregistered(horrors) then
I would add
Yeah, I know that is more than 5 but every one of those is too
good to leave out as far as I am concerned.
While it may be a little early to give up on these, I have at
least begun to question my sanity in buying the following(in addition to the
ones mentioned earlier):
Green Gables-I don't like the color. May try a different
location. Just a personal preference don't everybody get all excited and start
up a new robin because you can't stand negative remarks.
Lemon Delight-Early viridescence, yes, I do have a thing about
Mostly Ghostly-Spectacular in early spring. Pure white. The
bad part comes next; it melts out almost completely(at least for me) and then
comes back as all green. While it is kind of interesting, I'm not real sure I
would replace it if it crashed.
