Our weather was absolutely beautiful today. Perfect for planting some dormant hostas we bought a while ago. I planted 5 of them around the base of an established Japanese Maple. The hostas I planted were:
Thunder Bolt was planted at the front next to Moon Beam. It has white flowers and a reverse leaf margine so they should also make a nice contrast.
I can’t wait to see these hostas showing their beautiful green leaves each a different shade of green and golden-yellow. I was once told that green was not considered to be a color when talking about plants…it is all about the flowers…well, I beg to differ! While hostas do have some lovely flowers it is all about the leaves with these and I hope to have some pictures of my own to prove it by late spring or early summer. (the pictures on this page were taken from different web sites since my plants are dormant at the moment) My plants did have some nice fleshy roots, but I didn’t photograph them at planting time since that seemed a little like showing their private parts, but it did let me know that they are indeed alive and taking a rest to rejuvenate themselves for a spectacular show in a few short months.
Gardeners must posses a large amount of Faith and Patience…
Here’s to a greener future in 2010!
