Hosta of the Day 'Revolution' - Post Your Pics

Postby ViolaAnn » Sep 02, 2011 6:29 am

Today's hosta, 'Revolution'. This sport of 'Loyalist', was given to me by a friend in July 2007 after my first 'Revolution' died. At that time it was a single eye division and it has done very well indeed. This picture taken July 18.

We've had this particular plant since 2007 and every year it has one or two all green leaves; at least until this year. This year these one or two leaves have at least a small area of variegation! When we first got this plant I thought it would eventually turn all green but it seems to be hanging in there!
