Hi All~
I am finally getting caught up with some of the 'things' I wanted to do this summer.... one is to thank CHRIS for a wonderful hosta he sent this spring. I ordered FIckle Blue Jeans and was SO IMPRESSED with the size and quality of the plant (and bonus Diva). Here is a picture taken this month of it planted out in the garden.

A very belated THANKS, Chris!
Hallson Rocks!
Cheers~

Another archived reference to Fickle Blue Genes: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=45028

I have had this hosta for a few years and find it to be a slow grower.

Yes, compared to the pics from KatailS, yours are slow.
Space, soil ?
Chris may have a answer :wink:
