Hosta of the Day #3 - John Wargo

Postby redcrx » Nov 08, 2014 10:04 am

John Wargo is a nigrescens hybrid. It has white backed leaves with some red in the petioles and produces nice flowers late in the season.

Sorry I don't have many plant pictures but lots of flower pictures. To me, this one has some interesting flower stripes.

Here it is in 2012

And another John Wargo flower a little later in the season. This one seems a little darker than the first one.
