Francee with a streaked eye.

Postby redcrx » Jul 20, 2017 8:52 pm

I found a Francee last season with streaked piece on it last season. I left it in the pot and the streaked piece showed-up this season. It was too hot to work in the garden this morning so I decided to break up this pot and pull the streaked piece off.

The main plant went back into the pot and a small piece of Francee also got potted. I potted the streaked piece but may put it in the ground where the original pot had been growing.

Yes, that's what is looks like (at least in the first Hosta Library photo) - viewtopic.php?f=1&t=48349

But looking at the single piece, it's not all streaked - only one side. I will have to wait until next season to see if a full piece develops similar to this old topic (when "Stephanie in Moonlight" came off 'Gold Standard') viewtopic.php?f=1&t=53129
