Hosta of the Day - Let's Twist Again

Postby redcrx » Aug 16, 2017 2:27 pm

'Let's Twist Again' is a sport of 'Patriot' that has the same coloration as 'Patriot' but the leaves remind me of 'Ripple Effect' only bigger.

I was at a garden center today and thought I had found a twisty leafed sport of 'Patriot' but it was not one-of-a-kind. There were 4 with the same twisty leaves. I went to another garden center nearby and that had about 20 plants labeled 'Patriot' but with the same twisty leaves. I bought one and started looking at the Hosta Library and the Myhosta Database list of sports and found 'Let's Twist Again'. I'm guessing there was a screw-up somewhere in the development of these plants and they got mislabeled. It is an interesting rippled leaf.
