Foxfire Irish Moon

Postby wzbt03 » May 05, 2007 7:51 pm

This is one hosta that would have to be replaced right away if I ever lost it. Once the season moves on it becomes a very milky lime green. One of a kind in the garden.
Very heavy substance and a good breeder.

I wondered about this one when I saw it on your 10-foot-rule list. Don't think I'd heard of it til then. Looks like a good one. You'll have to show a pic when it has the milky lime coloration.

Irish Moon Grouping

Postby wzbt03 » May 08, 2007 8:10 pm

Ignore the fact I have not weeded this section of the gardens yet and see if you think the Irish Moon sticks out as different in this grouping.
Others in the picture are:
Titanic
Hoosier Dome
Krossa Regal
Guardian Angel
f. Albomarginata (can't part with my very first hosta)
Hottsey Tottsey
Invinsible
Sea Fire
Komodo Dragon
Wooly Mammoth

This is a developmental section that will have to be redone at the end of this season.

Foxfire Irish Moon starting to get its milky color.

Invinsible to the right, Hoosier Dome in back and Wooly Mammoth to the right if I am not mistaken.

I like the nice round, heavy leaves on it. It's one of my favorite new purchases. Mine is a bit ragged as something has been nibbling at it, but I like it just the same. Fingers crossed for a scape on it.
