Hosta of the Day - Full Frontal

Postby redcrx » Aug 22, 2018 12:33 pm

Full Frontal is a Kiwi Full Monty sport that starts the season with a chartreuse edge. Later in the season the edge switches to a blue- green.

The plant is new to my garden so I haven't seen it do its color change. From the write-up it sounds like a "blue" version of Yellow Polka Dot Bikini and a few others.

Yup, sounds like a blue version of YPDB or Hanky Panky.
