I've tried growing King Tut twice and cannot get it to grow. After seeing yours I may have to try it again! Lovely walk through your gardens.

Paul - you and I have so many of the same hostas -- I love your Pocket Full of Sunshine!! Where did you find that one?

Also My Blue Ivory is extremely slow grower -- on year 4 and only 2 eyes. How is your Dancing in the Rain? That is another one that I have had for years and still it's only on 2 eyes. Sad

Also my American Halo didn't make it this year!! Crying Crying

Good Morning Christine.....I found Pocket Full of Sunshine at a good local nursery. They got it from Monrovia. I also found a nice plant of Risky Business there which I was happy to get. They also have some nice plants of Orange Marmalade which I already have. I would get another one of those if I had more room. I also found a nice plant of Goodness Gracious at another local nursery. It is in a Proven Winners pot. Last year they had Tropical Storm and Little Sunspot which I added to my garden. I think Blue Ivory and Dancing in the Rain are slow because of all the white and lack of chlorophyll. My American Halo is larger each year which pleases me as it is one of my favorites. It has a small all white sport which would die if I removed it.......I'm digging out some lawn today to expand a bed. My family just shake their heads at Dad.......

Paul - its so funny -- all those you mentioned I got over the past year or two too!! Smiling They are all so beautiful.
I will have to try American Halo again!!! Maybe get it a bit bigger this time.

And who cares what they think -- you just keep on digging!!! And smile and talk to yourself and the plants while you are digging -- that way they will stay away from you!! Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

I am making a memorial garden for my Mom. I picked up praying hands and when I saw your Hanky Panky I picked that one up to. My Mom was always praying for me because of my Hanky Panky. I will plant HP behind my Mom's Praying hands. Rolling on the floor laughing

I was her wild child. I found the perfect job. Government Auditor. You cannot play hanky panky with a Hanky Pankier. Hilarious!

Yes she said I could always make her laugh. So when I saw Paul's HP I thought that was perfect.
