Hosta of the Day - Grand Finale

Postby redcrx » Nov 12, 2014 2:34 pm

Grand Finale is a hybrird from 'Maruba Iwa'. ('Maruba Iwa' is a selection of longpipes var. latifolia.) Grand Finale is a medium sized light green plant with late season flowers.

The flower pictures in the Hosta Library are mine from the 2009 season

This was one of my first hosta. It was planted on the 2008 season.

Here it is late in the 2011 season.

I think the difference in flower color from the previous year is because I'm using a better camera.

The cluster of plants in this garden was destroyed by voles last winter. I have a few fragments in pots. I need to redo the garden with wire baskets at some point.
