looking for pic of 'Dawn's Early Light'

Postby Canadian-hosta-girl » Jun 04, 2008 9:05 am

I am pretty sure I saw a pic in earlier may of someone 'Dawn's Early Light' that looked fabulous and I cant seem to remember who posted it and can't find the post...

I found it by luck 2 weeks ago and grabbed it and since mine is a tiny eye but with nice leaves. I would like to see this mature clump pic so I can figure out the best spot for it ....

WOW --- Ok now that's one I need to get for my garden. Anyone know how well it does in Sun? Part sun? Full Shade? Love the pie crust edges.

Shelly it is the same color as St Elmo's Fire. From Sea Fire.
It is a very cool plant though, has more character.

Thank you hostadesigner. Yes it was your pic with the trillium river going through the garden bed. I just loved that. That's the pic that made me buy this hosta -- it just picks up the light and glows .....simply stunning!

thank you again :)

Dave thanks for the info it good to know. I was trying to find something to offset my Queen of the seas I just got, so St Elmo's Fire maybe a good one. What do you all think? Good compliments to each other? And since you just sent me that one in our trade that would work out great. Thanks again for the wonderful hostas.

Shelly, I think it's a great combination. One of these days I'll post pics of groupings in the beds, and you'll see that I try to put solid colors between variegated ones, and yellows next to blues really make both stand out.

Yeah this is the year that I'm trying to go though the gardens and make adjustments according to sizes and color combos....Yeah I know should have done this in the first place but I'm kind of a complusive shopper. I find one I like and buy it. Not really thinking about where I'm going to put it. Aren't we all?

Sorry Canadian-hosta-girl I kind of hijacked your thread. :???: But thanks for bringing this up.
