Hosta of the Day - Miss Jody's Special

Postby redcrx » Nov 02, 2014 7:35 am

Miss Jody's Special is a medium size light green hosta with red petioles from Art Wrede's work. The red coloration extends well up into the leaf on the front and back. It is thought to be a Katsuragawa Beni hybrid.

Registry - not registered
MyHostas - not in the database
Hosta Library - http://www.hostalibrary.org/m/missjodysspecial.html

Art Wrede gave me this plant at the end of the 2011 season. It is similar to his Miss Ruby but with ripples on the edge.

Here it is in 2011

Miss Jody's Special in the 2014 season

It got hit with a late frost and deformed some of the leaves.

This one turns out to be the first one up showing leaves. I'm only seeing nubs and shoots from the others.
