Medio-variegated, green elsewhere
Berndny had a remark in a thread about having too many with edge variegation, and not enough with the middle variegation.
While I have some with the white edges, or maybe just LIGHTER edges/margins, my preference is for the ones which have a lighter midleaf, with eye-liner margins. It seems to me, in my unscientific thinking, that the white margins MELT AWAY in our heat, leaving an unattractive jagged leaf for our very long growing season. The ones I have with darker margins/edges, they seem to fare much better. Of course, blues tend to turn to blue-green regardless of where the color is located.
Here are some of my dark-edged hosta.
Have any to share? Please do so.
Hotspur, a very interesting hosta from England, begins with a colored midleaf which turns white later in the year. I include the before and after pictures in case Ludisia sees this. It came from Naylor in 2013.
and in August after a lot of wear and tear
Catch Of The Day is a fragrant hosta with a sort of streaky midleaf, gonna get big, and to its right (not variegated) is another new fragrant, Honey Pie, in September. Brenda's Beauty is in back, gonna give her a better picture next
and, I will stop there. There are many more in my garden, but I must look for the pictures taken late in the season to show you how durable the leaf edges are. Even with sweet gum balls and pecans and squirrels jumping out of trees into them.
Love to see what you are growing with the green or blue edges.
