Hosta of the Day - Fruit Punch

Postby redcrx » Nov 27, 2012 9:58 am

Fruit Punch is a cross of 'Urajiro Hachijo' x 'Crested Surf'. It comes up bright yellow in the Spring with red in the petioles. It flowers late in the season.

2015 - July 03. This was new to me in 2015 and is being grown in a pot for now. By early July it had completely greened up. Maybe I need to find a spot with more sun.

My Fruit Punch is getting "cooked" in my new garden. Some of the early leaves are disintegrating.
Hopefully those later leaves can handle the midday sun.
That's Galaxy on the left and Cleopatra on the right with Jaz lighting up the center.

My Fruit Punch is buried in a sea of red cardinal flower weedlings - the hummingbirds love it.
