Daily Hosta #2 - laevigata

Postby redcrx » Oct 09, 2012 9:16 am

laevigata is a small hosta from Korea and closely related to H. yingeri. One of the descriptions suggests it may be a hybrid of H. yingeri and H. jonseii.
It has an interesting sport - Ray of Hope - with white streaks and the same flower.

I have had a couple of them in my garden since 2009. I'm going to show pictures over the years.

This first one is in a raised bad. These shots are from 2010.

The first two shots are of a second plant and were taken in 2010.

The next two shots are of the one in the raised bed in 2011.

Here is one I picked up this season. It was growing in direct sun.

It got a little damaged by deer so I don't have a good shot of the whole plant.

I didn't realize the petioles had color on them.

The side view of the flowers shows the two different length of stamen - three are longer. This is the same as H. yingeri but not as big a difference.
