Daily Hosta #1 - 'Lonesome Dove' - Add your pics

Postby ViolaAnn » Sep 25, 2011 6:55 am

Name: H. 'Lonesome Dove'

Description: As a young plant, it is cream-coloured with a narrow blue margin. As it matures, however, the blue gradually seeps inward on the leaves, creating jagged spikes of colour until only the centre is left creamy-white, a "flame" of colour streaked with blue-green! Very slow-growing.
Size: Small-Medium (32"w x 17"h) (mine isn't even close to that size)
Origin: seedling of H. 'Splish Splash' x H. 'Sagae' x H. 'Blue Moon'
Flowers: pale lavender, tubular on blue-green scape
Added to garden: Spring 2008
Notes: This hosta is patented.

As noted above, mine is a VERRY slow grower. I'm not so sure it will ever reach the registered size above. However, it IS a pretty little thing.

Yours is so pretty, where did you plant it ?

I have lost 2 of them, so if I ever dare to get one more, I would like to cive it the right place.

Mine seems to be getting smaller each year. Even so, if there are two eyes next year, I think I will divide it and move one of them.

2014 update. 'Lonesome Dove' continued to get smaller and at the end of 2013 I tossed it.
