Hosta of the Day - longipes Kinugawa Nishiki

Postby redcrx » Sep 16, 2015 5:41 pm

My longipes Kinugawa Nishiki is a green hosta with bright red petioles in the Spring.
The Hosta Library shows it as a yellow centered or streaked plant but mine is just green.

The flower is similar to Miss Jody's Special which also has a 'longipes' background.

When it came in.

I just received one from a vendor and it looks comparable to what yours looks like; no streaking or variegation. Is this cultivar perhaps prone to settling out and vendors are shipping out green reversions?
