Happy T Day to everyone and H. Quill question

Postby waldo » Nov 24, 2016 10:20 am

Happy Thanksgiving! I have a question regarding H. Quill. If any of you have it, maybe you could shed some light on the comment in The Hosta Library "As the last flower fades, it puts out a small new scape from the top of the old one. ". I am curious as to exactly what this means and if anyone has seen it. One of my hybridizing goals is flower improvement. And I'm wondering if this trait is worth exploring. TIA

Waldo, Happy Thanksgiving!

Fair question, the comment you're referring to however is not on the HL itself, it is in the link to Hugo Philips' site. Hugo collects the comments he shows from various commercial sites offering the plant in question for sale, there's no real way of attributing the comment in question to anyone in particular. Having said that, Hugo contributed one of the pictures shown for Quill and it might be an idea to contact him, however there is no contact link on his website. Contact me via private message and I'll see if I can find a current e-mail address for him, the only one I have right now is from 2009 and quite possibly no longer valid.

I have been growing the plant for a while and have never seen that from the scape.
