Daily Hosta - 'Vulcan'

Postby redcrx » Nov 28, 2011 12:46 pm

Here is another one I have had for a few years. It also came from Chris. I love that third color on the leaf.

Here is Vulcan this season.

Vulcan is a sport of Captain Kirk. (Captain Kirk is one of the many sports of Gold Standard - one of my favorite hosta families.)
It is a white centered plant that has some yellow streaking between the green edge and white center. The yellow can be very pronounced.

'Vulcan', loved even though it lived in a pot for two years, was finally planted late this summer:

My Vulcan this season.

Here it is in early May with a Gypsy Rose at the top/left of the frame and a Blueberry Cobbler on the left edge.

And here it is in late July with the Gypsy Rose on the right edge in this view.

Very nice. It turns into a rounder-leaf sibling of Risky Business.
