Hosta of the Day - Starship

Postby redcrx » Jan 25, 2013 4:13 pm

Starship is a sport of Captain Kirk (which is a sport of Gold Standard). It is very similar to Moonlight.

Here is Starship today. I don't think it's growing as well as it can - I think there may be a lot of root competition or maybe it needs more sun.

Here is Moonlight on the left and Starship right.
