Hosta of the Day - Patriot's Fire

Patriot's Fire is a sport of Patriot. It is very similar to Moonlight.

I have had this plant since 2009. This particular plant has a habit of multiple flowering. fortunei types will do that occasionally in my garden but while going through photos of this plant I noticed it has done it the last 3 years. Mid-July is the normal flowering period but in these shots the flowers are from a second flowering period - Aug 2011 & Sept 2012.

Here are some 2011 photos:

Here are some photos from 2012:
