Hosta of the Day - 'Grand Marquee'

Postby redcrx » Jan 21, 2013 8:28 am

Grand Marquee is a sport of 'Carder Blue'.

[There is a topic comparing this hosta to Touch of Class - viewtopic.php?f=1&t=53928
Touch of Class topic - viewtopic.php?f=1&t=54886
This hosta has a Tokudama heritage and seems to flower about a month earlier than the Halcyon types.]

I have two of these growing in different environments - one in shade and one in sun.
This one is in shade:

Some other photos of the Grand Marquee I have in sun - these are from late 2011 when it tried to flower really late:

Hard to beliive it is the same plant even you know they can change a lot and the h. June family do change very much.
Good pictures of the old knowledge, - they get fewer but bigger leaves in the shade... and more smaller in the sun :wink:
Never seen it that clear before.
Thanks for sharing
