Hosta of the Day - Snake Charmer

Postby redcrx » Oct 07, 2015 5:07 am

Snake Charmer is a plant I received in a trade from Bev Stegman in 2012. It is not yet registered. It is an all green plant with long leaves and red petioles. It flowers late with branched scapes.

Snake Charmer is a cross of ('Mikawa-No-Yuki' X 'One Man's Treasure') X 'Yoshingawa' so it has a lot of kikutii in it's parentage both pod and pollen. It has a lot of longipes in the pod parent from the OMT pollen and the longipes part of 'Mikawa-No-Yuki' which may account for the color in the flower since I grow both 'Mikawa-No-Yuki' and 'Yoshingawa' and they have light colored flowers (for me anyway).

It also has a finely serrated edge which can be seen at the Stegeman's Web site http://www.foosf.com/gallery/main.php/v/stegeman/snake_charmer_2.jpg.html

I have noted that edge on 'Yoshingawa' http://www.perennialnursery.com/forums/download/file.php?id=76733&mode=view

Reason: add an OMT piece to the parentage that I had missed
