Hosta of the Day - Calamity Jane

Postby redcrx » Jun 21, 2014 12:40 pm

I have had this plant since 2010. It's a cross of 'William Lachman' x plantaginea so it can be a little streaky. I had planted it in a small cluster of about 5 hosta in a spot with a lot of root competition. The group was in an area I need to walk-in so last year I potted the group. This season Calamity Jane has exploded in the pot.

That's a nice streaky division. Is it fragrant, too?

I has never flowered for me - hopefully it will this season. I pulled out the pot to get some better photos.

'Calamity Jane' a fragrant, streaked Hosta which will settle to a cool looking edge.
