RE: hosta-open DIGEST V1 #722


That's exactly what I am doing this year. I marked all my late bloomers, the
ones in pots (H. rupifraga, H. 'Fall Bouquet', H. pycnophylla, H.
'Mikawa-no-Yuki', H. longipes var. latifolia 'Urajiro Hachijo', etc.) that I
intend to bring inside in about a week or so to put under lights with the
seedlings (about 7000 seeds planted). What I did last summer when I had some
late blooming plants and didn't have what I was looking for to pollinate
them with, I went to the local hosta nursery and scoured their plants and
found a few early bloomers that had re-bloomed late and borrowed their
plants (with their permission) for a few days.

		My approach to this problem is to leave the early bloomers
alone (out 
		in the garden) and bring potted plants of the late blooming
ones into 
		a greenhouse in early spring.  Depending on where you live,
when you 
		bring the plants into the greenhouse and how warm the
greenhouse is, 
		you should be able to get the late blooming ones to bloom at
least 4-6 
		weeks ahead of schedule.  I guess you could also bring them
		and keep them in a sunny room.  

		I've also had some Golden Tiara bloom early for me in the
		that I used for some crosses and then without doing anything
		rebloomed later in the summer.  You might try bring the
early bloomer 
		into a greenhouse, let them bloom very early and then see if
		rebloom later when the late bloomers are flowering.
