Hosta of the Day - Boyz Toy

Postby redcrx » Jul 10, 2015 3:02 am

Boyz Toy is a small hosta that starts out bright yellow and goes to green later.

Hosta Registry - not registered
MyHostas - http://myhostas.be/db/hostas/Boyz+Toy
Hosta Library - http://www.hostalibrary.org/b/boyztoy.html

I have had this plant since 2010. The database says it's a dwarf but mine has leaves bigger than Blue Mouse Ears.

Here it is in 2012.

    Ed, taking a look at the 3rd picture on the Jul 10, 2015 3:06 am posting -what are you doing up that time of night?- I'd say you have a nematode issue with this specimen.....

    Yeah, I pull off the leaves and destroy them when I see this.
