Hosta of the Day #3 - Lady Luck

Postby redcrx » Aug 17, 2017 7:54 pm

'Lady Luck' is a sport of 'Lady Gaga'. It is a small plant with medium green center and white margin. The leaf backs are white and the leaf edge is rippled. The petioles are red. The scapes are black and lateral.

It's a pity that there are a lot of interesting hosta coming out now with these problematic "recumbent" scapes. Still, I'm looking forward to seeing this one grow up.

One flower opened today. This is a weird looking flower colorwise. And I think a spider got into the pollen and spread it across the flower on its web.

A few more photos - it hit me that this plant looks like 'Red Alert'. I went back to the Database and 'Lady Luck' does have a longipes background BUT I was thinking 'Red Alert' was from longipes and it's not - it's from 'Katsuragawa Beni'. Then what was I thinking of that is longipes with a white edge??? Hmmm, maybe it was 'Fall Dazzler'.
