Hosta of the Day #2 - Whirligig

Postby redcrx » May 20, 2016 12:49 am

Whirligig is a sport of Whirlwind - maybe - the MyHostas Database says it is but the Hosta Registry says "Parentage Unknown". The Hostapedia says "not listed".
It's a small upright plant with two-tone green leaves.

I got this plant in 2009. It's in two pieces in the same garden.

That's Niko to the right and Gold Standard bottom/left corner.

This is the second piece. That's Eternal Flame behind to the right - another Whirlwind sport.

Whirigig today - the "two-tone" look from early in the season is gone.
That's Niko to the right and Mr Blue behind (top).
