Daily Hosta #2 - 'Cherry Berry' - Add your pics

Postby ViolaAnn » Nov 08, 2011 7:18 am

Name: H. 'Cherry Berry'

Description: Dark green lance shaped leaves with white centre area, irregularly streaked into the green. Slightly rosy petiole. Named after the fall colour of the cherry coloured seed-pods.
Size: Small (15'w x 10"h)
Origin: H. 'Lachman 82-18-1' x H. 'Lachman 81-9-2'
Flowers: Violet flowers
Added to garden: spring 2006

This one has grown well for me. I took a few divisions from it in 2009, but have otherwise left it alone. Love the red scapes and flower pods. Would love to get a seedling to grow, but so far they have all been fatal whites although it does set good fat seeds.

I have had one for years but it's in too much shade. I picked up another one at an "end of season sale" that I will put in more sun.

'Cherry Berry', June 13, 2012. I never used to have a problem with this one and slugs, but the last two years (and this year was dry), this plant has lived up to the name "slug bait" that I've heard so many others use. I wonder why it's happening just now.

And redcrx - yours looks like a totally different plant with such narrow centres to the leaves. Interesting. Is there more than one variety of this plant similar to 'Peppermint Ice'?

Mine is quite a mature plant now. There's not a lot of difference in the last 2 years.
