Hosta of the Day - 'Soldier Boy'

Postby redcrx » Jul 05, 2013 6:21 pm

I have two of these - one in the ground in sun and one in a trough in bright shade. This is their third season in my garden.

'Soldier Boy' is a cross of 'Galaxy' X 'William Lachman'.

Soldier Boy growing in the garden with a lot of sun. The other one I have is in a trough in shade and it's leaves are nearly twice as large.

I got curious able the size difference an took a leaf off the in-the-ground plant and placed it on the plant in the trough. The one in the trough seems to be losing it's margin coloration.
