Hosta of the Day #2 - Yoshinogawa

Postby redcrx » May 21, 2014 9:13 pm

Yoshinogawa is also known as kikutii var. polyneuron 'Yoshinogawa'.
Named for the Yoshino River ("gawa" is river).

I got 2 of these small streaked plants in 2011. It flowered in 2012. In 2013 I got some good photos of the serrated edge.

A photo of two Yoshinogawa from yesterday. I'm still working on cleaning out my troughs.

That's a Harry van de Laar in the trough with the smaller Yoshinogawa
and a Limey Lisa and Peace in the left trough.
