Hosta of the Day #3 - Playmate

Postby redcrx » Nov 19, 2014 10:36 am

Playmate is a small sport of Striptease. It starts out looking like Obscene Gesture but is really one of those types that flips its colors during the season. In this case the photos show it happens in May. It's funny, if you don't know it's going to change you would think it's the wrong plant.
