Hosta of the Day #2 - Phantom

Postby redcrx » May 16, 2015 4:36 pm

Phantom is a seedling of Riptide and looks much like it. It gets it's name from the white coating on the leaf. It has color in the petioles that goes into the leaf.

Here is Phantom in the 2014 season.
That's a couple of Shade Fanfare and a laevigata above it. The others are weedlings.

I like 'Phantom' a lot. Great pics. The large size of its flowers are surprising!
