Hosta of the Day #3 - Stolen Ability

Postby redcrx » Nov 07, 2014 11:18 am

Stolen Ability is an all green sport of the streaked Vivacious. It has dark-red petioles with color pushed into the leaf front and back and it also produces light colored late flowers.

I got this plant in 2012. For being a plant green hosta it seems to standout.

Here it is in 2012 when it first came in.
