Re: H. 'Bud is Wiser'


Both Guardian Angel and Angel Eyes also came from Mobjack, however that does not mean that they are identical.  I talked to Rick Thompson before he died and he told me that his plant, like mine came in a delivery from Mobjack.  The reason that the three plants in question may not be the same is that the plants that Rick and I selected and named were not the plants we got from Mobjack, but were plants that evolved from those plants.  I have several variants of center variegated Blue Angels, and chose the best of these to name.  Rick told me that he did the same. Not all of the plants here that came from the original stock are the close to being identical, one even has a powder blue streak down the mid-vein in the center of the white area (sounds attractive but it isn't), so we cannot assume that the plants Rick and I ended up with are the same.  My guess is that for all practical purposes, they are essentially the same, but there is the possibility that as his and my plants were evolving, they may not have done so in an identical manner or stopped at the same point.

I don't have any information on Nanticoke Angel, but would assume that the above holds true for it also.

 Norm, We have a local nursery that has a sport of H. 'Blue Angel' he calls H.'Nanticoke Angel'.The growers name is Mike Harris and his nursery is Nanticoke Nursery. H. 'Nanticoke Angel' came mixed in with H. 'Blue Angel' stock purchased from Mobjack Nursery 4 or 5 years ago. I believe I am correct is saying that this is the same source where Rick Thompson got H. 'Guardian Angel'. I have a couple of two division plants of H. 'Nanticoke Angel' that I will be watching carefully. Thank You Norm for supplying us with information from your extensive hosta data bank. Dan Nelson

H. 'Bud is Wiser' is a white centered sport of H. 'Blue Mammoth' that is similar to H. 'Guardian Angel' and H. 'Angel Eyes' but the white center is supposed to hold longer into the summer before greening up.
