Morenci Garden Club meets 12.09

Written by David Green.

The Morenci Garden Club met in the Stair Public Library Annex Nov. 10 to discuss growing hostas. Co-hostesses for the evening meeting were Edith Dwyer and Choyce Quigley.

There are several hundred hosta varieties available. The plant is shade-tolerant, low maintenance, quite forgiving, and can be incredibly elegant. Foilage colors include green, blue, white, gold and countless unique variegated combinations.

Mature plant sizes range from two inches in height and four inches in width up to 36 inches in height and 60 inches in width. Following a discussion among members, the hosta was designated one of the most popular perennials to grow.

The club is planning a new fund-raiser with the sale of MicraFiber cleaning cloths.  Contact any member for more information about these “miracle” cleaning cloths.
