Hosta M through Z Zone 6 Ohio


Finishing up this month with the Hosta M through Z. A few I didn't get photos of this year but this is close to the majority of my Hosta collection.

Raffaella said...

Great collections of Hostas! Hugs!

Angie said...

Hosta envy Cher! - That is some collection!

Christine @ Stonehouse Living said...

Hi Cher,
What a great collection of thriving Hostas!
And here I thought I had the Hosta bug bag... You have inspired me to once again add to my list of Hostas in the garden.
All the Best,
Christine

Cher, You have an amazing collection of hostas! I'm always amazed at how healthy and snail free they look!
They obviously love your yard!

Lavender Cottage said...

My goodness Cher, you have a lovely collection of hostas. For quite some time I would just divide the few I had and plant them around but I'm digging out a lot of doubles and giving them to our garden club for their sale. Now I can buy new ones. :-)

Musisz bardzo lubić te śliczne kwiaty, że masz taki duży ich zbiór. Ja mam zaledwie pięć, bo na więcej brak miejsca.Pozdrawiam serdecznie.
You must really love those beautiful flowers that you have such a large collection of them. I have only five, because the more the lack of space. Yours sincerely.

Ginger Zuck said...

Love all the Hosta's,. I cannot wait for the weather to get better so we can plant and landscape!!

Malar said...

What a lovely Hosta plant! I'm not so good with them...

Carolyn ♥ said...

Lovely collection, Cher. They are a favorite of mine, though they don't always do so well in the heat of our summers.

HolleyGarden said...

These are so pretty. I especially love the variegated ones. Sugar and Spice is quite different with those pointed leaves! But my favorite is Night Before Christmas - love how the white is in the middle of the leaves.

Beth said...

Hi Cher, I have always liked Patriot. Also really like White Ray, Sugar and Spice, Regal Splendor, and Night Before Christmas. Orange Marmalade has lovely coloring. You have a great selection of hostas!

FlowerLady Lorraine said...

What a wonderful collection you have. Hostas don't grow down here, so I will enjoy yours.

Noch mehr Hosta, ich glaub es nicht! Deine Sammlung ist einfach grandios.

Hi Cher, blogging introduced hostas to me, i always love them from then on. And yours make me envious. The only problem is that our climate is not suited for them.

GirlSprout said...

Love the foliage on the Orange Marmalade and the Regal Splendor hostas. It looks like you're getting some sunshine. I hope it's warming up for you. :)

The Gardening Shoe said...

Another lovely selection of Hosta. Regal Splendour is my absolute favourite - such a resilient, reliable Hosta and incredibly elegant and beautiful. I haven't got one in my garden now, so your post has reminded me that I could indulge in a spot of retail therapy while it's snowing. Hurrah!

Serenity Cove said...

You have a great collection! I have a few of those and one is one of my favorites, Pauls Glory.
Thanks for sharing and I can't wait until they start growing. I'm planning for my yearly trip to Wade and Gatton!!

Kate said...

Hi Cher!
So far I have 1. It's fun to see what's possible, though!

The Sage Butterfly said...

When I first began planting hostas many years ago, I was amazed at how many varieties there were. They are all so beautiful. I wish the voles did not like them so much.

Jane Scunthorpe said...

Wow ! That is a whole lot of Hostas - all clearly loved and treasured !

Roger Brook said...

I thought I was doing well to have about thirty different hostas in my garden! They do not look as good as yours for very long and some of my varieties develop leaf fungus disease. A few of mine I completely cut back midseason if they are really tatty.
I am usually rewarded by fresh new leaves but as a technique its a bit dodgy if I get the timing wrong!

DeniseinVA said...

They look so wonderfully healthy. I can see you take a lot of care with them. I have a lot of shady spots in my garden. These give me some great ideas, thank you :)

pontos said...

Bellissime Hosta e bellissimo blog! Lo seguirò con piacere :)

Buona primavera :)

Erin Kaine said...

They all look amazing but I love you White Ray.

Autumn Belle said...

Foliage plants are lovely in thier very own way.

Paula Sealey said...

What a stunning collection of hostas! Mine always seem to be ruined by slugs and snails here in the UK. Yours look so healthy!

Milex said...

so perfect

Neuer Gartentraum said...

Herzlichen Dank für die vielen lieben Kommentare, die du mir geschickt hast. Ich freue mich immer sehr wenn ich etwas von dir lese.
Wie sehen deine Hosta jetzt im Frühling aus? Sind die neuen Blätter schon zu sehen?
Bei mir zeigen sich die ersten Spitzen.
Gruß, Anette

Roger Brook said...

My hostas in York UK are just popping through and some look really nice Perhaps you could do some pictures of yours as they emerge.

Janie Jurkiewicz said...

I have been contemplating hostas and yours are absolutely stunning
