I hope it gets to Canada soon. But I often get it as much as a month later than you folks.

Hosta of the Day - Madison Mine

Postby redcrx » Sep 12, 2012 6:57 pm

I got my Journal on Monday. There was an article at the end about hosta names. Part of the article dealt with the name Madison being used for two different hostas. I have a green one that doesn't match the photo in the hosta library. Turns out the one I have is really Madison Mine and not Madison.

Well, you would know!!! I fell in love with 'Something Different' for 2 reasons: it is gorgeous and I have 'Something Else' (cause Lew used to say 'Rose Marie, you are Something Else' ) and I had to have that pretty gold Hosta. So yesterday I ordered I ordered 'Something Different'. (It never ends!) And Chris, do you have Rhino Hide or Proud Sentry? I can't pull up the Hosta list'( A Senior Moment?)

Hosta of the Day - Madison Mine

Postby redcrx » Nov 15, 2014 10:01 pm

The MyHostas database lists this hosta as "medium". It seems "large" to me.

Madison Mine in the 2014 season
