Re: Love Pat ACTS NORMALLY


In a message dated 98-05-19 22:27:50 EDT, you write:

<< Planted a mature division of Love Pat last June, nice plant with 3 or 4
crowns which looked fine all summer.  It came up late this spring in the form
of a mini Love Pat.  Currently has 4 crowns and the leaves are  
 1 1/2" inches long and deeply cupped.  Looks like a deeply cupped Baby
Bunting as the whole plant is only about 4" across.  What is happening? >>


DONT WORRY....

FIRST WHERE DID YOU GET THE PLANT....NURSERY OR MAIL ORDER....

ALL....AND I REPEAT ALL...SIEBOLDIANA AND TOKUDAMA PLANTS NEED 3 TO 5 YEARS TO
GET THE ROOT STRUCTURE NECESSARY TO SUPPORT THE PLANT YOU SO DEARLY WANT.....

IN CASE YOU DONT KNOW WHAT TYPE YOUR PLANT IS....LET ME GENERALIZE IT TO
ANYTHING THAT IS THICK, BLUISH AND GREATER IN SIZE THAN MEDIUM......SO IF YOU
BUY A BIG BLUE....GIVE IT TIME TO GET THERE.....

IF YOU GOT A 'CROWN DIVISION', THEN YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE TO WAIT....YOU HAVE A
PLANT THAT WAS SLICED OFF THE MOTHER PLANT.....IT NEEDS TIME

IF YOU HAD A POTTED PLANT.....YOU, FOR LACK OF A BETTER TERM, RAPED IT WHEN
YOU STRIPPED IT FROM THE POT, AND JAMMED IT INTO MOTHER EARTH.....

REGARDLESS.....NEW HOSTA ARE LIKE CHILDREN....EVERY YEAR BRINGS GREATER JOY
AND GREATER BEAUTY......BE PATIENT....PLANT IT AND IT WILL COME.....

AND FINALLY, IT IS NOT UNCOMMON FOR A HOSTA TO GO DOWN IN NUMBER OF CROWNS THE
SECOND YEAR......IT JUST CANT SUPPORT ITSELF AFTER THE BIG DISTURBANCE...

DOES THIS BRING UP ANY OTHER QUESTIONS????
