'Roller Coaster Ride' - please add your photos

Postby ViolaAnn » Sep 13, 2014 12:56 pm

'Roller Coaster Ride' has a narrow white edge which causes the leaf to be more undulating than 'Ray Of Hope'. 'Ray of Hope' sport; small. Good substance with small lavender spider flowers in late summer. Perfect in a pot.

Mine has such a marrow margin that it’s almost unnoticeable. But I love the little, wavy leaves. I acquired it about 2010 from a hosta friend in Vancouver - Pieter. Photo July 16, 2014.

I got Roller Coaster Ride in 2010.

Here it is 2012

And the flower in 2013 - I think it has 3 shorter filaments like yingeri

And the plant this year - I don't know why the color is so different

2015 - July 25. RCR is being grown now in full sun due to the loss of a tree. And it hasn't skipped a beat.

'Roller Coaster Ride' in my "Skunk" garden yesterday. That's 'Galaxy' on the left and 'High Fashion' on the right with 'Jaz' behind.

Somehow I had classed this one as a mini in my mind. That idea was blown out of the water this year when it was suddenly at least 50% larger than last year. It is actually a "medium". I just moved it a week ago as it was crowding my 'Curly Fries', hence one flat side.
