Hungry deer and heavy rains have not been good for Martha Radka’s hosta plants this year, she told West Life. But Radka, who has about a dozen variations of hostas in her yard, said she doesn’t plan on replacing them because she loves the plant, which does well in the shade.
Artists entered works in five categories – oil/acrylic, watercolor, drawing, charcoal/pastel, and photography. Prizes of $100 will be given to first-place artists, with $50 going to second-place finishers. For the first time this year, categories were divided into two divisions, professional and amateur.
First-, second- and third-place prizes were awarded in 15 categories this year. First-place winners each received a $25 gift certificate to one of four area garden centers – Cahoon Nursery, Dean’s Greenhouse, Gale’s Westlake Garden Center or Plant Crafters.
The yard includes 14 varieties of hostas alone, and 40 to 50 varieties of other plants, including lilies and Veronicas. Because much of his yard is shaded, the Woyandskys plant many species that don’t require a lot of sunlight, such as hellebores, ferns, ligulardias (leopard plants) and Jacob’s ladder.
