Hosta of the Day - Dragon's Eye

Postby redcrx » Aug 03, 2015 11:37 am

Dragon's Eye is a medium sized dark green plant that looks like Riptide its pod parent.

There is some difference in spelling. The Hosta Library and the MyHostas Database call it Dragon Eyes. The Hosta Registry has Dragon's Eye.

The flower scapes on the left are from Miss Linda Smith.

Dragon's Eye is looking a little smaller this year, likely due to shrub root competition.
