Fwd: *AUCTION-URGENT* (geeze I like seeing this in Subject Header) LOL
plant donation for Canadian Bidders ONLY***
I'd like to donate a hosta for Auction, (a
double-eye division, from a mature-clump) for ***Canadian
Bidding/purchase ONLY/exclusively, since I cannot mail plants into the
USA from Canada!
This hosta-variety, in my opinion, is one
of the *Top Breeder Plants* in the world today! It produces
seedlings having white-backed slug-resistant leaves, having leaf petioles
& flower stems ranging from purple through to brilliant red; and
this, goes right up into the leaf veining. This cultivar holds it's
leaf beauty almost up to snow-fall, in the same manner as rupifraga
species i.e. highly frost resistant cell-structures.
In light of the rarity of this item, I'm
applying a reserve minimum-bid of: [$50.00 (US Funds)] on this
purchase. Any American wishing to obtain this excellent
breeder-hosta plant, can obtain same from:
[same price i.e. $50.00]
