Hosta of the Day #2 - Purple Lady Finger

Postby redcrx » Oct 30, 2014 6:58 am

Purple Lady Finger is a cross of longissima with clausa. The Hosta Registry says clausa while the MyHosta database says clausa var. normalis. I think the plain clausa is correct since these flowers do not open.

I have a hard time keeping this one alive. Finally got one to stabilize in a trough.

Here it is in early 2013.
