Daily Hosta #1 - 'Gemini Moon' - Add your pics

Postby ViolaAnn » Oct 26, 2011 9:42 pm

This is for Thursday, Oct. 27

Name: H. 'Gemini Moon'

Description: wide, gold margins, green leaf centres. Leaves have good substance for slug resistance.
Size: Medium
Origin: sport of H. Abiqua Moonbeam
Flowers: pale lavender in August
Added to garden: Spring 2008

This has been a very good grower for me and when the Ontario Hosta Society visited my garden in June 2010, it was much talked about. In 2011, I divided it a bit and also removed two small plants which were growing at the base of it. I'm watching them. So far, they seem like a small GM. Not likely to be seedlings since they have a margin. Besides, I didn't have the plant long enough for it to have seeded itself.

Doing well this year, but not quite as large as before I divided it in 2011.

2014 picture. Another which is fairly mature. It has regained everything that was divided from it in 2011 and then some. I like the colour of the 'Tiramisu' heuchera which is just below it.

2015 - July 3. Doing well. I like this one next to 'Touch of Class' as the colours are nearly reversed. And the Heuchera 'Tiramisu' highlights the chartreuse of the leaves.
