'Chalk Wave'

Postby leafmould » Jul 13, 2007 6:43 am

This hybrid has produced some amazing offspring and really stands out in a crowd.
Holds the chalky blue even in this heat.
I have send some morning sun pics and a rainy day day pic, taken the other day.

Jim - your hostas are simply awesome. Do you sell any of these? You should! I would buy one - probably many.

Mr. Leafmold,
In addition to the most amazing seedlings, you also have a knack of coming up with the best names -- good marketable names....hint, hint. When are you going to bring some of your beauties to market?

Very nice indeed, Jim, but what is all that red stuff on the petioles? Seriosly, if I could follow in your footsteps, I would feel that I've accoplished my goal. Great work, keep it coming.

Unlike anything in my garden... reminds me of some of the things Danny vE has been working on, like Purple Boots, etc. I like it a lot!

I agree....let's take a vote. All in favor of Leafmould's creations being brought to market say, "Aye" (how do you spell that?). :D

I like this one, love the flowers!

That's at least 3 customers, Mr. Leafmould. And if we each bought one of each of your hostas...man, you'd be rollin' in the loot! :D :lol: I know I would by one of each of your intros...maybe two of some! :lol:
