Hosta of the day - Get Nekkid

Postby redcrx » Aug 07, 2015 5:13 pm

Get Nekkid is a cross of 'Elvis Lives' and Hosta yingeri 'Treasure Island'.

I have had this plant since 2010. It's getting engulfed by the clausa normalis next to it.

Does it set seed, Ed? You can sure tell its heritage from the pistil type, very yingeri/laevigata-like. Yes, clausa var normalis does tend to run, doesn't it, I tolerate it because I love the colour of the flowers on it, but much prefer to grow it in a container for that reason.

I think any type of clausa will run. I have the closed version and I've removed it from the places where it really likes to grow and grow it in spots where nothings else will and it does fine.

I don't remember seeing pods but I will check this season.

I have clausa in another part of the garden and it is starting to run but it has more space since the voles took out some around it a couple of years ago.
