Hosta of the Day #2 - Lemon Juice

Postby redcrx » Aug 22, 2018 12:00 pm

Lemon Juice is a Striptease sport from Gerard Heemskerk. A couple of the descriptions mention tetraploid.

This plant is new in my garden. At first glance it looks like another white-centered sport of Striptease but I think it has too much yellowish color in the center. I haven't grown it through a season yet but I think it will look more like My Passion.

Be watchful on this one for HVX. Lemon Juice is a Dutch import that has been found with HVX in the past.

I have one test strip left from some testing I did earlier in the season. Should I test it now if it's not showing any symptoms?

Depends on how long you've had it. If you've had it all summer then it should still work, but waiting until next spring might be better. Sometimes it takes a full year for the concentration to build enough for a positive test.
