Mardi Gras?

Postby GibbsCorner » Jun 05, 2007 2:59 pm

Does anyone have Mardi Gras? Is this similar to Guardian Angel, with the variegation fading as the season progresses?

Or (looking at the pictures in the Hosta Library) were the hostas I saw totally mislabelled as Mardi Gras? :???: They had light-colored "misted" centers with a bluish border.

Hey there. This is 'Mardi Gras'.

This was shot last year at Olga's.

Okay, that's NOT what these plants labelled "Mardi Gras" looked like. :roll:

I wonder what those really are? I will try to get a picture next time I go back.

Looking at the pics of 'Bridal Veil' in another thread today, I don't their their Bridal Veils were Bridal Veils, either. Definitely some labelling issues.

Thanks for the clarification, HostaDesigner!
