Daily Hosta #2 - Color Parade

Postby redcrx » Dec 07, 2011 3:45 pm

This is a sport of Fragrant Bouquet. This plant was separated from the main plant when I took off a solid piece. This plant actually looks better than the original.

Looks like yours has some really nice streaking so it will probably hold that coloring for quite a while :) Thanks for sharing.

Update for Color Parade

Here it is in 2012

Late in the 2012 season the plant was split into a solid "yellow" version and the original Color Parade.
Both plants were potted.
Here is Color Parade in a pot for the 2013 season.

I thought this had gone all yellow but I found some streaking on it today. I need to take the solids off.

I have two other large pots of this plant but they are all yellow - it's a nice yellow so I will be planting one in my corner garden.

I did have a recent photo of one of those other solid pots in, what will be, its new home - when I dig a hole to plant it. That's 'Seducer' above it, to the left is 'Gone with the Wind' and further left is 'Winter Snow'. The "blue" to the right is 'Awakening Angel'.

I separated the solids from the 'Color Parade' and ended up with 3 pots of solids.

Here is a shot of what the original looks like today - a few years age it went all solid.
It's growing in my "Fragrant Bouquet" group (that also has some streakers not related).

Same group a little further away - that's 'Guacamole' on the left (a little small this season), 'Paradise Sunshine' bottom/right corner, 'Fragrant Dream' top/right corner. The small dark plant with the white edge just above and left is a clump of 'Seventh Heaven' that looks like it's lost its streaking and there's a small 'Fascination' just to the right of 'Seventh Heaven'. The yellow toward the top/left corner is 'The Shining' (it never gets very big). The streaker on the left is 'Savannah Supreme'.
