Hosta of the Day - Sugar and Cream

Postby redcrx » Sep 20, 2012 10:22 am

Sugar and Cream is a white edge sport of Honeybells:
The first three shots are of a plant in a trough.

How long have you had this SaC mine grew rather large in no time at all. Was a bit of a slug bait plant for me and no longer have this one.

redcrx - I'm about to update 6 more old threads and then I'm taking the weekend off. Would you like to add more or search in the archives and find others from last year for an update? A search for either "Daily Hosta" of "Hosta of the Day" should bring them up.

I have had SaC for 2 seasons. I would expect it to get big since it is out of Honeybells.
I just went back and looked at last year's photos and discovered all three of the "Sugar" types I just put up came in exactly 1 year ago 9/20/2011. So I count them as 2 seasons but they just were stuck in a trough last September. They came in as multiple pieces so one piece went into the trough and one piece went into the garden.

Hi Ann, I'll go through the old ones and try to find some new ones.
