Daily Hosta - Rocket's Red Glare

Postby redcrx » Sep 23, 2012 8:21 pm

I got two of these in this season. One went into a pot and the other into the garden. I have posted some of these pictures on another topic but decided to do "Hosta of the Day" when the flowers came in. Both plants started to open their flowers on the same day.

Both plants are the same size - the camera distance or angle will make them look different.
