Hosta Stitch In Time

Postby Jamie » Jul 16, 2007 11:58 am

Was the other that was most talked about at the convention. It's a sport from Summer Breeze that Rob Mortko "Made In The Shade Gardens" found. Gary "Naylor Creek" had a nice display plant at the convention but I forgot to take a picture. This is another that I'm anxious to see at a mature size. It was also a pleasure meeting Rob in person and putting faces behind the plants :-)

Here's the Naylor Creek display. Gary said 'Stitch in Time' does not tissue culture well so probably will not come down in price anytime soon.

8-) I like the look of this plant. I have had similar things happen to seedlings of mine but they were never good growers, Any growth reports from purchasers ?

Definitely something different for hosta, Isn't it? Almost doesn't look like a hosta! Wouldn't that be pretty with blue in the center? :D

Here's mine...

First pic is what it looked like April 15. The bottom two are today. The color in today's overhead is not quite right. It is greener/golder as you can see from the side view...

While I have a few others I got this year that have grown faster, this one is keeping up nicely and has very good substance.

Hi Leafy,
I agree with Charla. While not the fastest growing in the garden and not the slowest. Mines put on a new flush of leafs since I took that picture over 2 month ago.. When I decided to buy this the first thing that came to mind was your Cosmic Rain and Amethyst Star. Stitch In Time would really POP if it had a flower like one of yours :wink: . To be honest I'm not even sure what the flower looks like on this one.

I want one of these really badly, but the way things are going for me in the garden this year, I don't want to spend $50.00 for it! :( I know it won't come down in price any time soon, but maybe I'll see how the things I planted this year come up and chance it next year. Yours is really pretty - so different. :cool:
