Some shots - from Gold Standard

Postby redcrx » May 15, 2011 12:10 pm

Most things are up (except for the loses) I'm still waiting for White On - On Stage is way up.

Took some shots of my Gold Standard sports group. I think they are at their peak of color.

Beautiful plants and I love your azaleas. I can't grow them here for some reason.

I am at the northern range of that type of azalea. They advertise that they flower 3 times. I don't get that out of them but they do light-up the fall garden as well as spring time.

Here are some more shots from this weekend.

Hi Ed,
I've noticed you seem to be fond of Striptease sports. I picked up Hanky Panky last year and it seems to be starting out with a wide margin. Is this normal?Image

Those eyes in front are normal. The ones in back look like they don't have the dark green center - they could be in trouble - I had a couple like that on a Minuteman sport and they just faded away. Your main ones should be fine.

Some more shots from the weekend.

Sorry I got the camera strap in the frame.

Here is a group of sports and sports of sports from Gold Standard.
It's dominated by Kiwi Full Monty and Striptease.
With Cabaret on the front edge and a tiny Ricky Business that doesn't want to grow - might be planted too deep.
Between KFM & St is Alan Titchmarsh getting overwhelmed - but it is actually growing well.
White Bikini is in the middle with My Passion off to the top/right of it and Dry Ice off to the top/left.

This pair of Hanky Panky were shown late last season to highlight variations in the plants.
They looked like twins for two seasons and now different for two years.
That's Cabaret at the top of the frame - same one that's at the bottom of the previous frame.

Here is a sport of Kiwi Full Monty called Bubble Dance that I received from Marlys through the Skaggs Benefit Auction.
It certainly highlights how variable the plants can be.

Here's another Striptease sport called Tassels. Most of these sports will change their colors through the season so there is always a surprise on the way.

Beautiful shots of your hostas, Ed!

Every time I see it I tell myself, "I need 'Luna Moth'." :lol:

Re: Some shots - Luna Moth & Moon Split

Postby redcrx » May 20, 2011 9:28 pm

Here is a picture of that Luna Moth in it's setting with other hosta. I also picked up Moon Split which seems to look like Luna Moth.
I also think Goodness Gracious has a similar look.
