Hosta of the Day - longipes f. hypoglauca

Postby redcrx » Dec 29, 2012 10:57 am

longipes form hypoglauca is a species that is used in many hybrids to carry red into the petioles.

Hosta Registry - not registered - it is a species

Hosta Library - http://www.hostalibrary.org/l/longipesfh.html

I was going to do a topic about what I have growing in my basement. I brought in two longipes f. hypoglauca that had very late flowers on them and I was going to try to get pods on them - that didn't happen. I didn't put them out - I just kept them in the basement under a light and they started growing again. I was going to post just these pictures and then realized there wasn't a full topic on this plant - just some old references which I will address later. Here are some shots today and some during the growing season.

The first one just started putting more leaves out of the center of the plant.

The second one put a new sprout of the side.

There was a reference to this plant being the same as Fall Bouquet:
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=44713

But for the sake of argument check the flowers:

longipes f. hypoglauca:
longipes f hypoglauca f 12 07068zb-9-22.JPG


Fall Bouquet:

From my observations FB has more white on the edge of the petal. Also the anthers are different colors - Fall Bouquet has yellow while longipes f. hypoglauca has purple.

I just noticed I mentioned the difference in flowers of longipes hypoglauca and Fall Bouquet back in 2012.

longipes hypoglauca late in the 2014 season
