Daily Hosta #3 - Goldbrook Glimmer

This is a sport from Halcyon - a sturdy leaf plant that hangs around in the fall.

That is a really subtle variegation. Goldbrook Glimmer was registered in 2009 but the registration information said that the info was from a 13 year old clump! It was probably one of those cases where the person who introduced it just wasn't certain if it would have any appeal, being that subtle. I have a similar sport of Paul's Glory that has a blue-green edge and a pale blue-green center, and I'm doing the same thing - keep growing it, wondering if anyone would ever want a piece of it :)

Here are a couple more shots later in the season. I need to get a shot when the leaves are wet to see if the center shows up more.
