Where's your pic, Pia? Don't know if you remember, but I got mine the first week of April. I didn't know when I ordered it that it not only has ruffley yellow leaves but red petioles, too! In fact, when I first got it, it didn't yet show its red pets. It is really pretty in real life...I hope you are enjoying it! :D

Marrakech has pink flower scapes but I don't remember it having red petioles. I don't have it in my garden anymore so I could be wrong as my memory isn't the best lately :lol:

Thanks for reminding me Charla. I usually don't keep my hostas once I introduce them. :???: I always have to make room for the new babies. :D

Every time I scroll past this topic it's like a switch is thrown & I hear Crosby, Stills, & Nash. :o :wink:

Kent - I couldn't do what you do with your hostas when you put them into TC. Especially as fantastic as your intros are!! I'd have to keep at least 1 division of it whether I had any room for it or not. Guess I'm too sentimental... :???:

Well the truth is... I usually get sick of them after awhile. :o I spend so much time obsessing over them that by the time I introduce them I'm kind of glad to let them go. :P

The only one I currently grow that's out on the market is Little Hobber...I can't not grow that one since it was my first.

I'm with everyone Kent, I couldn't part with them either. :o

I have 'Little Hobber'! I can see why you would want to keep that one, it's adorable. Mine sits nestled at the foot of a giant S&S...makes the name a bit more appropriate with him there...looks like a little hobber (whatever that is :D ).

I added Marrakech to my collection this spring too, and am looking forward to the pink petioles.

If Kent is reading, can you tell me it's potential as a breeder? Best as pod or pollen parent if so?

Thanks!

Laura,

I would start by using it as a pod parent. Try crossing it with different blue hostas, you will like the results.

Cheers,
Kent

Thank you very much for the advice (and all your hard work in creating)! I'm sure enjoying it, and like visiting the FoosF website for new ideas and of course to drool over everyone's photos. I'll have to see what other hostas I have to play with when it is blooming. 8-) I've got several nice new blues now, or on the way. I'm still sorting out the whole hybridizing thing and learning to keep records and what blooms together.
