Long narrow leaves are intensely rippled and serrated on a rapid grower...interesting for hybridizing.
A low-growing clump with rounded blue-green leaves that have excellent substance and good texture...one of the bluest.
One of the best medium-sized "blues"...makes a wonderful clump of blue leaves topped with lavender flowers mid summer.
True tetraploid of ‘Praying Hands’ with lots of great attributes...very thick leaves (almost feel like rubber) that stay much smaller than the parent and a creamy-yellow to white border that is much more defined.
Green leaves with a green border that changes to creamy-white and the center also turns lighter...'Striptease' sport.
A sport of 'Andrew'.and similar but much more vigorous! Corrugated, puckered and folded leaves with ruffling at the base are blue-green with a showy white center. Green streaks appear late in the summer which contribute to the added vigor.
Sport from 'Serendipity Singer' and has creamy-white leaves with a blue border…leaves are lance-shaped and slightly folded.
A sport from ‘Orange Marmalade’ we found several years ago and believed to be a tetraploid but testing has proven it is not. The leaves are thicker and the bluish-green border is wider than the parent. The leaf center is a bright yellow but fades to a parchment color and shows some variability from plant to plant.
Harry van de Laar
Grayish-green leaves with white backs held on red petioles. Good substance and topped with lavender flowers.
New introduction has apple-green leaves framed with a white border that change to gold and then each new flush begins apple-green again. Sport from 'Gold Standard'
Believed to be the tetraploid version of 'Pineapple Upsidedown Cake'…thick leaves have a yellow center with a dark green, somewhat wavy border.
Fantastic sport from 'Bright Lights'...thick leather-like leaves have a chartreuse-yellow center and a very wide blue-green border. Topped with lavender flowers midsummer and can take quite a bit of sun. A great addition!
Light green leaves with a wide yellow border that turns white later...good substance on this 'Grand Tiara' sport.
Puckered and cupped dark green leaves are incredibly thick on this seedling from H. ‘Electrum Stater’. Growth rate is vigorous and the leaves hold themselves in an unorganized manner. Near-white flowers.
Leaves emerge with a yellow center that brightens to white and a variable wide blue margin. Good substance and pale lavender flowers.
Nice compact clump of frosted heart-shaped blue-green leaves. Good substance and a great growth rate.
Large rounded medium green leaves are surrounded by a wide greenish-yellow border that turns to creamy-white.
Holar Arches Park
Ronny Van Keer continues to bring us a series of superior plants. This hybrid from 'Arch Duke' x 'Jurassic Park' has beautiful puckered leaves that become more than 20" long. WOW!!
Holar Crimson Grape
Another from Ronny that will grab much attention. A hybrid from'One Man's Treasure x 'Harry van de Laar' has very thick grey-green leaves held on dark red petioles and the red goes far into the leaf.
Holar Garnet Crow
This eyecatcher from Ronny is still fairly limited…yellow leaves have a satiny finish and are held on very dark red petioles.
Holar Ice Empress
An 'Empress Wu' x 'Mr Blue' cross that gives us very powdered, milky blue leaves. Medium to large plant and will only be available this year.
Holar Purple Flash
The first time I saw the photo of this one I couldn't believe it. Now, we're talking puple splashed over thick gray-green leaves that are also held on purple petioles! Hybrid comes from 'Purple Haze' x 'Riptide' and I sure hope Ronny has more of this glamour to bring us...
Holar Red Spear
Thick, strong and shiny leathery leaves are held on red petioles…the red goes deep into the leaf on a medium sized vigorous grower.
Holar Wild Side
This hybrid from 'Neptune' x 'Tequila Sunrise' made me giggle! "A picture is worth a thousand words" sure fits this hosta as trying to describe its wavy and ruffled leaves is almost impossible and it grows like a weed!
Holy Mouse Ears
Another sport from ‘Blue Mouse Ears’...thick leaves have a white center surrounded by a blue-green border.
Home Sweet Home
Marco Fransen brings us a gorgeous new sport from 'Sweet Home Chicago'...heart-shaped yellowish-green leaves have a wide creamy-white border.
An open pollinated seedling of 'Grace Like Rain' from Trudy Van Wyk …greenish-gold leaves have good substance and brighten with the sun.
Hot Air Balloon
Large to very large green-gold with huge unique leaves that seem to float in the breeze. Vigorous grower with very wide and deep set veins...stitched effect. Can take lots of sun.
SHADOWLAND* PP23598, CPBR4948 Improved version of 'Eskimo Pie'...wider, brighter blue border and green streaks frame the white center. Great looking plant that shows good vigor and bulks up fast.
Forms a massive dome-shaped clump of blue-green heart-shaped leaves that are nicely corrugated. Give this one plenty of room as it be an imposing hosta!
Grows like a weed...venusta hybrid that has small, heart-shaped gray-green leaves with a creamy-white margin. Size and rapid growth rate make it suitable for edging.
