Daily Hosta #2 - 'My Claire' - add your pics

Postby ViolaAnn » Sep 20, 2011 6:11 am

The second hosta today is 'My Claire', which I think is underrated as a hosta. I like mine a lot. Divided it last spring and replanted it in 3 groups.

BTW, I will be away from my computer for 2 days - making a very fast trip (Air Canada willing as the flight attendants are threatening to strike tomorrow) out west to inspect a 2-week-old granddaughter. So if someone wants to post hostas that I don't have during those two days, please go ahead.

Description: Medium green centres with creamy white, irregular margins
Size: Small
Origin: unknown
Flowers: tubular, lavender in early August
Added to garden: Spring 2006

This hosta is from Mr. Bob Hird, of Dubuque, Iowa. He belongs to my hosta club.
We had a picnic Saturday in the homes of one of the members, and I noticed that he
had a very nice 'My Claire', and it was in almost perfect shape at the end of a long,
hot, alternately too wet and too dry summer.
Thanks for sharing this one!
Oh, and enjoy every minute of that new baby inspection! Congratulations!

Wondering how we skipped N... :wink:

Nice looking hosta, though. This looks like a Peace that actually grows!

We skipped "N" because I'm doing MY hostas and the only one I have is "Nolan On Ice' - my own seedling of 'Outhouse Delight'. I'm doing registered cultivars only and only those that I have - I specialize in mini - medium hostas. Why don't you post a couple of "N" hostas while I'm away from the computer with the pics?

BTW, I'll be away for two weeks in Oct. starting the 3rd; so someone can fill in during those days - I suggest going back to cultivars which I don't have in the latter half of the alphabet.

This one continues to do well, but may get swamped by a growing 'Brother Stefan'. I may give some consideration to moving it. Photo July 16, 2014. BTW, as I post this on September 1, it is full of flower buds.

Interesting that it blooms so late. At first I thought it looked an awful lot like 'Aristocrat', but the longer leaves and the later bloom time make it more distinct.

It's smaller than 'Aristocrat'. :D

2015 - Aug. 13. Mine grew well this year, but will need to be moved to make more space for an encroaching 'Brother Stefan'. When I cut it back today - end of September, there was virtually no slug damage.
