Hosta of the Day - Lime Fizz

Postby redcrx » Sep 25, 2012 10:16 pm

Lime Fizz is in the Lemon Lime family. It is a seedling of Lemon Delight which is a sport of Lemon Lime. Some others in this family are (one of my favorites) Lemon Frost, Iced lemon, and Twist of Lime.

Update on Lime Fizz

I have it growing in my front lawn garden and in a trough and a few pots.

Here it is in 2013 in my lawn garden.
