Hosta of the Day - Journey's End

Postby redcrx » Oct 29, 2012 1:47 pm

There is a thread that touches on this plant.
http://www.perennialnursery.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=56025

I wanted to post some of my shots - this plant is getting really big. I went back a few years to get some flower photos - I didn't get any good flower shots this season.

Love, love, love this hosta! Dug by Chris in 2009 :) I've moved it a couple times, but it stays happy.

First to (really) bloom in our garden this year, I think. I was really impressed with this when judging a leaf show a few years back, and had to have it.

I got this Journey's End from Chris back in 2008. It may be the biggest hosta in my garden.
That's Li'l Abner to the right - came in the same time.

There is a picture of this plant up in this topic taken the same time in 2012 and you can see a big difference the cold winter makes in this plant coloring-up

Journey's End is definitely one of the great ones and very large and fast growing....

Journey's End has become a very favorite. Esox, you have the biggest one I've ever seen. Fantastic! Here's mine from a couple days ago; finally getting its size going this season.

I tried to get real close, managing to get my own shadow in the picture, so I could focus on only Journey's End. It's hard to focus on it in real life because the eye goes to the larger scene-stealer Sun Power to the right.
