Daily hosta - 'Mango Tango' - add your pics

Postby ViolaAnn » Sep 11, 2012 3:00 pm

Name: H. 'Mango Tango' - 2012

Description: A thin mango yellow stripe in the middle of the glossy green leaves; the center of the leaves has a unique crumpled look

Size: Medium (20" h x 30" w)
Origin: 'Dance with Me' sport
Flowers: lavender, late summer on tall scapes
Source: White House Perennials
Added to garden: June 2012
Notes: I have found others in this family - 'Last Dance', 'Summer Breeze' to be quite fertile, sometimes producing interesting seedlings. This was new to me - an impulse buy early in the season.

I had a feeling that was related to Summer Breeze, I can see the similarity to my SB in the leaf shape and structure.

A good , fast and easy to grow hosta.
Not that much texture, but slugs have avoid it here.. do not know why

If you think it is just as fuzzy as Stich in Time !... it is not at all

Mine looks terrible - it hasn't grown a bit since this spring photo. I removed the robust green leaf and it hasn't returned over the summer. I will move it, I just moved my Journey's End that was really failing yesterday. I will post some photos later.
