Hosta of the Day - Strip Poker

Postby redcrx » Feb 12, 2016 7:10 am

I didn't realized this hosta wasn't here. It's being offered on First Look and I wanted to see if I still had one. I do and then I went here to see what was posted. Couldn't find it so here's my "Strip Poker".

Strip Poker is a sport of Striptease. A very pretty plant with bright leaves in the Spring that change colors through the season.

I have had it since 2010. It's a small plant that I moved into a pot during the 2014 season - trying to get it to grow better and keep it away from the voles. It needs more light than what it was getting.

Here is Strip Poker early last season. That's "Golden Garters" on the left (one of my Striptease sports) and Kiwi Dotterel on the right and above another Striptease sport.

Here it is back in 2012 while in the ground. Strip Poker is on the right - that's Kiwi Dotterel on the left (a "similar" Striptease sport). I found a few photos to show the color change. Kiwi Full Monty is at the bottom in all of these photos.
