Other Notes


May 2017

This was one of the FIRST hostas Irma Kelley (my mother) gave to me. When I first had this plant it did grow to be about +36 inches in diameter.  I took it out not realizing the success I had by 2008.  Had I realized that success it would have been recentered it and left in the garden.

2018 may be the year we see this hosta again attain its 36 inch diamber once more in the Loft 101 garden.
