Postby Danny Van Eechaute » Sep 21, 2007 3:54 pm

H.Color Festival ( 2007 AHS registration ). This one is putted in tc now and will be a 2009 introduction. It's a H.Enterprise sport. Notice the fluo-yellow stroke between the cream center and the dark green margin.

You've been a busy lad, Danny!

Will we see these TC's both sides of the pond the same year or your side first?

I've seen this one in real life, and it's really a special plant, even better looking than the pictures

Very nice! This one is an add on to my list!

So any information on a mature size high "/wide "? Fast or slow grower? How are the leaves, substance, slug resistance? Flower color and produces seeds?

Here's hoping for a VERY successful TC production!
We're going to need a lot of them by the sound of it!
Beautiful hosta!

This is very pretty Danny, and I think it passes the ten foot rule, because the yellow seems to be in the same spots on each leaf.
It reminds me of Summer Music with the tri-color effect.
I will get this one some day.
