Hosta of the Day #2 - Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Postby redcrx » Jun 27, 2016 2:33 pm

Gentleman Prefer Blondes is a yellow hosta with some "odd" edge coloration - some white and dark marks. It is one of Alex Malloy's plants.

It does show up in one of Don Rawson's lists - the one concerning "Watermarks".

I won this plant at a First Look auction this weekend. The plant has coloration similar to the Gold Standard sports Moonlight and Fire Opal. So I'm guessing it's out of Gold Standard but there are similar "looks" out of other lines like Patriot's Fire a sport of Patriot - but still in the realm of Fortunei.
