Re: Knockout

Two years ago I planted 12 T.C. liners of H. 'Knockout'. It is a nice
looking plant but a very slow grower for me here in southern Delaware.
Eleven are still single divisions with 6 or 8 leaves and 10 inches in
diameter. One is a two division 16 inches in dia.

My friend Russ Parsons is of the opinion that H. 'Knockout' is not a very
good hosta. He got rid of his. Russ has approx. 500 cultivars.

I agree with Ran L. that this hosta is a very slow grower. Even so I will
keep mine.
