Daily Hosta #4 - Ooh La La

Postby redcrx » Dec 07, 2011 3:57 pm

A nice small white-centered hosta that seems to be able to handle some strong sun.

Looks like yours is holding up well :)

Ooh La La is an Ed Elsager hybrid of Sea Prize x Hypoleuca. The original plant was registered as being 27" wide and 22" high when it was 4 years old and mature plants I've seen are really incredible, having a thinner white center and wide edge. Unfortunately out of tissue culture this plant is an extremely slow grower and it takes longer for the edge to become wide enough to give it some vigor. But as it gets older it is pretty special and worth the time it will take to mature.

Our local nursery has one on display that stops me every time I walk back to their greenhouses.

Ooh La La this season. It developed an unusual leafy scape.
