2014 06 10 – New Hostas

Two posts in one week! Can you believe it?

We’ve received a bunch of new Hostas from Q&Z Nurseries in Illinois this afternoon, as well as the new Field Guide to Hostas, signed by Mark Zilis. Knowing Hosta collectors as I do, I thought that, rather than just list the new ones, I give you some pictures. The pictures aren’t high res or anything like that, but they give you an idea. You can also get more information about each one from their site, qandznursery.com. Just go to the availability page and find the one you want to know more about.

They’ve arrived in liners, 2.25″ pots and 4″ pots. As we’ve done in the past, they will be available in their arrival sizes until we get them potted up. There are two varieties that I don’t have pictures for; Pitch Black (medium), and Itty Bitty (miniature – didn’t even see that one on their site)
