I haven't made a wish list specific to 2010, but I'll know it when I see it. Haven't had time to go through my big list yet cause I've been doing alot with Cubit. I'm sure I'll come up with some by spring. How about you?

I will have to have H. Gunther's Prize! I'd even create a new bed to put that one in, it really intrigues me. Am waiting for info from Dawn's Bloomers. Actually, there is hardly a Hosta that I can resist!
Anyone have thoughts about the White Feather? At first, I thought Yes, but the more I think about it I'm wondering if it might just look pale and sick.

My White Feather really hasn't done anything spectacular for me. It's been in the ground going on four years this year and so we'll see how it behaves this spring. I may need to move to another spot if it still underwhelms me. Now, other friends of mine that have it, it seems to be quite the little player for them. I just may have gotten a bad tissue culture. I'll let you know how it does later this year.

My White Feather does the melt-down by mid-season.

Mine doesn't melt. It just turns green like it is supposed too. I just have it in a bad spot and it's not set off to it's best example there. My White Christmas melts...

Just put a request in for Gunther's prize and Rhino Hide. That's more then likely all I'll be getting this year. Running out of space until I re-org and remove things. Looking forward to those very much.

I cannot wait to see my Gunther's Prize pop up this year. Last year....grrr...one of the two eyes came out of the ground non-streaked, so I dug it up and moved the non-streaked part behind the garage.

I received my 2010 list from Flying Frog Farm on Friday and today I'm going to look through that. Thinking about everything that I ordered so far for this year, I think I am most excited about 'Foxfire Palm Sunday' and 'Confused Angel'.

My T-Rex never grows....it's coming out this year and getting moved behind my fence. White feathers does well for me so far, I think you'll like it.

I'm hoping I can get a somewhat stable streaked gunthers' prize. Boy I'm wishing aren't I....If that works maybe I should wish for more land and money....and oh a chore boy . Rolling on the floor laughing
