New acquisitions

Apparently it doesn't take much to make me happy.

I visited a friend with a very large hosta garden this summer and fell for a plant called 'Emerald Necklace'.  Naturally I whined until I got some of the plant, which by itself made the 8 hour round trip drive worthwhile.  I got a lot of other good stuff too, but I really liked this plant.  It's fairly small,  with a darker green edge showing a lot of puckering and a smooth lighter green center.  Not nearly as dramatic as 'Embroidery', but to me, the subtle contrast of textures in the leaf was beautiful.  It wasn't until I got home that I found out that the plant is viridescent and the light green center is actually white in the spring.

Since I can't attach pictures here, I put one on our web site.  Here's a link if you would like to see it.   www.bridgewoodgardens.com/92098.htm .

Here's another poll for those of you who would like to participate.  Which of the newer introductions you've obtained in the last few years do you consider worth their going price and why?
