Daily Hosta - Tea at Bettys'

Postby redcrx » Feb 19, 2012 5:43 pm

Tea at Bettys' is a sport of Rippled Honey.

I know it's way out of season but this one just unfurled. I was looking to replace a Fragrant Surprise that I had killed and finally located one. In the catalog they had this listed so I thought I would give it a try. They came in about 6 week ago and I potted them up and put them in my garage. The other day I noticed this one had really sprouted so I put it by the window in my garage and it opened up.

A couple of shots today. It's dreary with rain so the lighting is bad.

It has ventricosa & plantaginea in its lineage so it should have nice flowers.

That's a nice looking leaf. I can definitely see the ventricosa in it!

Sun came out today and I was able to get better pictures of this one.

Nice, very nice :D

When do you expect it can come outside in the garden for real ?

Most years I have a window sill hosta, but I normally bring it out rather late in the spring. so wondered if it was an idea to start a bit earlier :hmm: Then, I normally start with a shaded location :-?
If they unfurl indoor they need to be adjusted to the wind and the sun.

It can't stay outside until mid-April - after the threat of frost is gone.
