Some new plants

Postby sugar » Jun 06, 2009 5:33 pm

I've purchased quite some plants over the last weeks... I was going to stop adding plants to my collection but :bd:

All pictures are clickable thumbnails in order to get a larger image...

Ivory Necklace
This one caught my eye instantly. The pure white margin contrasts very well with the dark, green corrugated center
Image


Goober
I wante to add a plant with lots of corrugation, but not too big ...
Image

Eye Catcher
I also wanted a not to large yellow with corrugation and OK substance, to replace my Fried Bananas, that is too large

Some more

Prairie Moon
Vivid yellow with reddish petioles and a pointed leaf shape, this one is a great plant

Pamela Lee

A 'Radiant-Edger' sport, it was a well-appreciated gift plant...
Image



Funkey Monkey
Green leaf become yellowish green and yellow afterwards, leafs are held upright so the very dark petioles are really shown

Some nice leaf shots :)

Be warned, Ivory Necklace is a very vigorous grower that can get fairly wide, fairly quickly. I really like the corrugation plus how it stands upright.

Pamela Lee is pretty much the exact same sport that we got from Radiant Edger via Radiant Star. It hasn't been officially registered yet, but here is a very old picture of it along with Radiant Star:

That Captain Kirk sport is pretty wild, but I would be worried that it would burn with that light coloring. Hopefully it performs well for you.

Thanks for sharing!

Some very nice new hostas there!! I hadn't heard of 1/2 of them. I sure liked the leaf shape of Awakening Angel. Does it stay that shape as it matures?

It's in a container so that shouldnot be a problem . It is indeed the combination of corrugation, the upright mound and the long petioles that make this plant very nice.

It is standing in full sun over here (in a tray of water), no burn marks after a month . It should look like this later this year http://www.hostaworld.nl/Boracay.html

Yup, it's a Mikawa-no-Yuki hybrid, and has the same wedge shaped leaf shape. That was the reason why I bought this plant

Small update
Borocay is taking a lot of sun over here. Instead of turning white it starts to colour up, becoming yellow, with a clearly visible 'watermark' in it.
No sun burn up to now...
