Daily Hosta - 'Dorset Clown' - add your pics

Postby ViolaAnn » Sep 03, 2012 9:44 pm

Name: H. 'Dorset Clown'

Description: streaked with substance, smooth substance, good breeder, passes on blue seedlings. Slow growth rate.

Size: Small, 8" h.
Origin: Parentage Unknown
Flowers: near white, tubular
Source: Goldenbrook Hostas
Added to garden: Spring 2012
Notes: this is a new one for me this year. Still pretty small and I gather it grows very slowly, but will get somewhat larger. Anyone know for sure?

Here's a single leaf. I nearly forgot that I took lots of leaf pictures this year. But I should have put a penny on each one for scale.

'Dorset Clown' 2014
This one has grown quite a bit in the last 2 years. It flowered in mid-July 2014, but did not set seed.

2015 - July 25. This one is in too much sun this year and became faded in August, but its growth was good. And it flowered and I have ONE seed pod. :D
