Hosta of the Day #2 - Crepe Suzette

Postby redcrx » Aug 26, 2017 12:41 pm

'Crepe Suzette' is a small dark green plant with a white to cream margin. It is a 'Flamboyant' hybrid from the Lachmans.

I have had this plant growing in a trough for many years. It was "bullied" by a 'Galaxy' and wasn't doing very well. The 'Galaxy' has been moved out so maybe it will do better.

I don't have any good photos at the moment - I have to check my old pictures.

Some old photos of Crepe Suzette.
Back in 2011 it went into a trough because it wasn't growing very well where I had planted it.

Here is the entire trough at the end of 2012 with Crepe Soul on the left end and Crepe Suzette on the right end. Rosedale Misty Pathways and Galaxy are the larger ones that took over the trough.
