Hosta of the Day - Red Cadet

Postby redcrx » Nov 10, 2014 6:22 pm

I came upon these photos almost by accident. They are from the 2012 season when the plant came in. I don't have any more recent but I found the pot the other day, while looking for something else, and it had a withered scape so it did flower in 2014 but I missed it. Hopefully next season I will remember to get flower pics.

Red Cadet is a cross of 'Riptide' x 'Blue Cadet'. It has red in the petioles that goes up into the leaf and a white back.
