Up then out?
OK, so far the 4 hostas I have in planter boxes in our shady alley, plus the one (Sum & Substance) potted in an oak barrel getting lots more sun are doing great! However, I noticed that my Empress Wu has started a more upright growth after being boxed and put in the alley, and the Sum and Substance is doing the same out in the sun. Is this normal?
The Patriot is sending up a scape and its growth is a small sprawl (horizontal). The June is a nice combo of up and out, the Stained Glass is a wonderful tangle of new eyes that look like a bad hair day.
Do certain sports/types have different growth habits (or different when they are young plants) than others, necessarily?
Btw, that Blue Yankee with the weirdo scape I cut off is growing slowest, but it is growing more out than up. It seems fine so far.
