Gypsy rose tease reversion or sport?

lsuhostafreak(7)May 20, 2012

I have a gypsy rose that has an all green division.

Gypsy rose is a sport of striptease which is a sport of gold standard which is a sport of Fortunei Hyacinthina.

Thus, is my all green division hyacinthina or a all green sport of gypsy rose which would be called "let me entertain you" (according to the hosta library).

Sports of sports becomes so confusing!!!

First off - if you ask for purpose of labeling it....it is a sport of Gypsy Rose, that is the most you can be sure of... I have a couple that are labeled that way in my gardens. Though one I may eventually give a different name and use the double "marks" around the name to indicate it is a name in my garden and not a traded named cultivar.

Second, if it is only for your garden, it doesn't matter - call it whatever you want...Green Gypsy of LSU.

Part of the fun of growing hosta is the sporting.

Hi, LSUHostaFreak in AL! Glad to see you show on the Hosta Forum here.

I really enjoy visiting the MyHostas.be website where they have a family tree for the sports. Don't get lost there and forget to come back though. Link is below.

Here is a link that might be useful: My Hostas (then find the sports)
