Hosta of the Day - Green Jeans

Postby redcrx » Apr 21, 2015 8:13 am

I was out this morning cleaning leaves out of my pots and making notes of where the pots are. While recording Green Jeans position on my garden map, I decided to look it up in my old photos. Here are some shots from 2013.

Green Jeans is a shiny leafed plant - a cross of "Hosta ventricosa 'Aureomarginata' x Hosta yingeri" (from the MyHosta database). The write-up says it shouldn't exist. It also notes that the flowers are "spider-like" from the yingeri side of the parentage. My photos do not show that. The flower color is in between. The flower does have a ventricosa shape to it (bell). The interior purple stripes are lighter then ventricosa and don't seem to descend as far into the throat of the flower as ventricosa.
