Hosta of the Day - Whirling Dervish

Postby redcrx » May 18, 2016 3:29 pm

Whirling Dervish is a dark centered white/yellow margined sport of Whirlwind. It's effectively a reverse sport of Whirlwind.

I have had this plant since 2009. Hasn't got very big but comes back every year.
I have posted photos of this plant on another topic "Whirlwind sports".

And here it is early in the 2012 season with Eternal Flame another Whirlwind sport that is bearly holding on these days.
