Daily Hosta #2 - 'Brother Stefan' - Add your pics

Postby ViolaAnn » Nov 10, 2011 7:17 am

Name: H. 'Brother Stefan' - 2008

Description: nearly round leaves lightly cupped and deeply corrugated leaves; scape has inflorescence leaves; leaves have a maple leaf variegation pattern
Size: Medium-large 35"w x 22"h
Origin: H. 'King Tut' x H. 'Mildred Seaver' seedling

This one has grown very well although I'm struck by the similarity between it and my 'Great Expectations'.

Great expectations has never done well for me ever. I wonder if that looks an easier alternative

Brother Stefan is one hosta that I can always name when seeing it in someone else's garden. Another first year hosta for me, it took a while for me to find one that looks halfway decent.

The growth has not been spectacular, but rather slow and steady.

Lovely hosta, think it is one of the best newer hostas. It grows rather fast, but most of all it get texture in its 2. year. It have way more texture than GE and is way easier and faster than the other ones :D Gets a lot of sun in my nordic garden and is still one of the nicer hostas in the garden here late August.

This is my first attempt at posting a picture on this forum. This pic was taken on Aug 3. I had to remove 8 solid green leaves from my Brother Stefan earlier this season. Has anyone else's BS reverted?

Irene - you did well at posting. I hope you get a response to your question about BS. I've not had that problem with mine.

Thanks, Viola Ann, I had trouble with resizing my image to the right Kbits. I should have made it a bit larger. Love this hosta and I hope it doesn't revert again.

'Brother Stefan' in 2014. This one continues to do well. I may have to move some plants to give it more space.

2015 - July 3. This one continues to grow well and I will likely need to move a plant which is right next to it.
