Hosta of the Day - Sails Ho

Postby redcrx » Nov 05, 2014 7:46 am

Sails Ho is a white centered sport of Krossa Regal. The white center gets a little "dusting" of green later in the season. The Hosta Library has a few other similar types like Regal Chameleon and Regal Heir.

The plant I'm showing was not purchased as Sails Ho. I was buying a streaked form of Krossa Regal and this beautiful plant showed up. I knew I has seen it before in someones garden while on a tour and going into the Hosta Library I found Sails Ho. I have it growing in a pot.
