As promised, this is the haul of plants that I got yesterday at Bali Hai Nursery. Mostly Hosta and Rhodohypoxis, but a few other oddities thrown in as well. You will notice one that is rather large for an accent, that’s going below my display bench, I just couldn’t resist the leaf colour.
Interesting comment that now is actually a good time to split hostas. Stephen and I always did this in Spring as growth emerges although that is seemingly a good time to trim the roots on hostas to keep them small leafed.
When you here the words Bali Hai some of you will automatically think of South Pacific 🙂
However, if you are into your Accent plants you should be thinking of this Bali Hai.
I had the pleasure of visiting the nursery today along with the Bonsai Baker and his good lady wife.
The owner Ian Scroggy, always makes you welcome and we had plenty of time to look around the old Nursery and the new one too. It’s a bit of hosta overload but there is also a stack of other interesting and unusual plants there that can be adapted to accent use. Here are some photos that I snapped there today.
Got a rather nice haul of plants today. Will share these with you tomorrow. Red wine now open and calling 😉
Looks like it could only manage one flower in this little pot.
Not the smallest I’ve seen, but the smallest I have, this little Rhodohypoxis is just about to pop it’s first flower. I love the pot colour with that rare Irish blue sky!
Always worth having in your accent collection. I really must gather up some more varieties of these.
