Hosta of the Day - Inspire Greatness

Postby redcrx » Nov 12, 2014 8:26 am

Inspire Greatness is a large blue green hosta with a cream colored margin. It is a stable sport of Brave Attempt.

Viktoria put up a nice photo last year - viewtopic.php?f=1&t=56921&p=489882&hilit=inspire+greatness#p489882

I ran into this "Hosta of the Day" when I was getting pictures yesterday. Most hosta are gone or in tatters but this one was standing alone from what had been a group setting. I had to go to my map to see what it was and found Inspire Greatness. I only have a couple of individual photos. I got the plant in 2010.

Here is Inspire Greatness very late in the 2014 season
