Hosta of the Day - Jezebel

Postby redcrx » Feb 18, 2016 6:50 am

Jezebel is a sport of Striptease. A good sized plant with bright leaves in the Spring that change colors early in the season to look like Striptease.

Hosta Registry - http://www.hostaregistrar.org/detail.php?id=3467&Variety=Jezebel
MyHostas - http://www.myhostas.be/db/hostas/Jezebel
Hosta Library - Not in the Library yet

(Note - the MyHostas database has the "Originator" as M. McHugh, my son. He is actually the "Namer" of the plant. I was looking for a suitable name for a "Striptease" sport and I explained the naming "conventions" associated with this line and he came up with "Jezebel". )

This hosta sported in 2010 from a large Striptease that also sported Bella Noche the same year. I got them separated in 2011.

Here is Jezebel in 2011 before I took it off the Striptease.

Here it is early in 2012.

And here it is at the end of the season where it looks like Striptease.

Here is Jezebel starting out. I have 3 pots but haven't located the third yet. I need to cut one up to send a piece that I donated to the First Look auction.

I tracked down most of it. I located more than I thought I had - it must grow like a weed and I didn't notice. I still have a photo of a black pot that I can't find - I may just have moved it into a colored pot.

It's switching to it's "Striptease" look but the new growth has the "Jezebel" colors.
