Hosta of the Day - Celtic Uplands

Postby redcrx » Aug 19, 2015 5:17 am

Celtic Uplands is a hybrid of ((x 'Swoosh') x 'John Wargo') x yingeri.

I have had this plant since 2011. It's growing in a trough but this season it is getting overwhelmed by Soldier Boy so I don't have any good plant pictures for this season just flowers. I will be moving Soldier Boy to a more suitable spot.
Here it is starting out in early 2012.

And later that season along with its trough buddies Soldier Boy and Ogon Tsushima .

And here it is in 2013.

I didn't get any good photos of the different stamen length from its yingeri heritage.

Here is Celtic Uplands today. It looks better than I had thought. I'm holding Soldier Boy out of the way.
