Hosta of the Day - Lottie

Postby redcrx » Nov 17, 2014 10:01 am

Lottie is a sport of Hanky Panky. It starts out the same as Hanky Panky but the center doesn't swap colors the way Hanky Panky does. Actually there are a group of Striptease family members that look the same when they start out - Cabaret and Yellow Polka Dot Bikini are among them.

Hosta Library - http://www.hostalibrary.org/l/lottie.html

This is one of my Striptease family sports. I have shown it many times on this forum. When it first showed up I was calling it "Slate Arrow Heads" because of the shape and color of the center. I was going to register it with that name until I came across a contemporary of Gypsy Rose Lee named Lottie Graves. The name "Lottie" fit with the Striptease family theme.

Here is Lottie in 2011 when it developed.
That is Hanky Panky on the left edge.

I split up the clump and put some in pots and a hunk in a garden dedicated to Striptease family members. Here is the garden plant late in the season.

That's very nice, Ed. Is anyone planning to go commercial with this?

And a second one I placed in a basket last season to keep the voles off it.
