Daily Hosta #1 - 'Illicit Affair' - Add your pics

Postby ViolaAnn » Oct 19, 2011 5:31 am

Name: H. 'Illicit Affair'

Description: tiny round leaves emerge yellow and centre turns green
Size: Tiny (7"w x 3"h)
Origin: Sport of H. 'Cheatin Heart'
Flowers: pale lavender, tubular on yellow scapes
Added to garden: Spring 2008

Registry - http://www.hostaregistrar.org/detail.ph ... t%20Affair
MyHostas - http://myhostas.be/db/hostas/Illicit+Affair
Hosta Library - http://www.hostalibrary.org/i/illicitaffair.html

In 2010, I separated it into 3 sections and replanted in the garden. In 2011, I further divided one of the sections. I think this one is a registered mini, but it doesn't seem like one to me.

We just got this one in 2010 so we're not sure yet . . but ours is already bigger than "tiny". Ours would fall more into the "small" category.

Modest growth in 2012.

This is one of a group I had to dig up last season and put in troughs - these came back nicely. The center plant has a scape so hopefully I will get flower pictures.

This one is growing well, but I must admit it's not one of my real favourites. Mid-July 2014.

2016 - is this one still considered a mini? The leaves on mine are as large as many of my "small" plants.
