Hosta of the day - Outer Space

Postby redcrx » Feb 28, 2015 12:29 am

Outer Space is a small hosta in the Striptease family. It is a sport of Outer Limits. The leaves can be very variable and will change color with the season. But basically it has a green centered leaf with a thin white edge. The traditional white strip that characterizes many Striptease family plants can be found on some leaves.

I have two of these - the bigger one is in some sun while the smaller is in bright shade.

Update on this one - I had posted this plant in the "weedlings" topic beause I thought the yellow plant was a "weedling". It turns out it's a solid color sport of Outer Limits. The yellow is now green and no hint of a center color.

Outer Space today with flowers in the center of the photo with White Bikini above, and Hanky Panky below. That's Cabaret bottom/left and Yellow Polka Dot Bikini bottom/right with Enterprise top/left corner still in a pot.
