Hosta of the Day - Titanic

Postby redcrx » Feb 19, 2013 6:21 am

Titanic is a sport of Sum and Substance with a dark green center and a highly variable gold edge.

Some other discussions about Titanic and similar types:

I have had this hosta since 2010.

These are photos from 2012.
That is Lakeside Old Smokey in the bottom left corner:

The leaves hold up late into the season in my garden:

Very nice! I love the irregular margins on this one. Does it become more "stable" with age?

I don't know. I hope not - it's those gold slashes on those huge leaves that makes it standout.

It seems to be the same as Sum of All - they are both "eye-catching" plants.

Here are a couple of leaves today. The plant is not as big as last season - it got eaten by deer last season.

One leaf came in really bizarre:

And a more normal leaf:
