Hosta of the Day - Miss Grace

Postby redcrx » Oct 19, 2014 8:42 pm

Miss Grace is a medium size light green hosta with red petioles from Art Wrede's work. It may be a Katsuragawa Beni hybrid.

I have two plants. One is growing in the ground in sun while the other is in a trough in partial shade. I have had the plants for three seasons and this is the first time I have seen it flower.

Here is the one in the sun late in the season.

Miss Grace this season - a little sun burnt and a little deer eaten but flowering with four good scapes.
That's Otter Point on the right coming into flower, Miss Jody's Special above, on the right is one of Art Wrede's seedlings #102 a light colored version. The small plant bottom/center is a Rocket's Red Glare that got uprooted this winter, I'm thinking the chipmunks disturb things during the winter.

My Miss Grace in a trough - the flowers seem bigger than usual this season.

I got a surprise earlier in the season when I noticed this bush crowding the trough ( the trough is sitting on some cinder-blocks that I use for flood control). I thought it was a weed at first then I noticed it was a root runner from a firethorn or pyracantha bush that had been on the other side of the path until an huge storm last season ripped it out of the ground. Now I have to decide if I want this bush to remain - they can get big and prickly.
