Hosta of the Day - Extreme

Postby redcrx » Dec 04, 2012 5:13 pm

Extreme is a sport of Hadspen Blue. It has a leaf pattern similar to Striptease with white veins surrounding the center. The color is given as blue margin and greenish blue center but some of my leaves show a reverse pattern.

I have had the plant since 2009. It is a slow grower.

In 2011 the plant developed a solid blue piece. When I took it off, a small sprout of the original came off also. I planted that in the same area and it survived.
