Pic of the Day--Lakeside Rocky Top

Postby Hank Zumach » Sep 18, 2007 10:20 am

Hi All--As is the case with all of the long list of "Lakeside" hostas, Lakeside Rocky Top is a product of the wonderful talents of Mary Chastain. We were fortunate to receive several of her varieties as gifts for the Friendship Garden. In its first year Lakeside Rocky Top measured 14x10 and this year its clump filled out nicely and measured 14x6. Over the next few years I expect that the clump will continue to fill out but the overall size will remain "small".

I think I got a dud from the Lakeside family. Lakeside Cha-cha looked great the first year, okay the second, but smaller, but has struggle since then, and has continued to shrink all summer. I'll be surprised to find it next year ;(

Hope this one does better for you :)
