Gold Standard with HVX

hostamanphilMay 3, 2012

I have a Gold Standard with what I think is an advanced case of HVX. Probably should have removed it earlier. It is over a foot wide now. Phil

Strange...Have you tried treating it with garlic and olive oil?

I think it's just frost damage. Should be OK.

I'm thinking that's not a virus. I'm thinking it's fungal.

Some posts are just 'way funner' than others!
Great specimen though -- glad you recorded it on film and shared it with us.

Phil - Now that IS funny! Babka, by the looks of that slice out of it at 10:30 it was already tried with garlic and olive oil.

Did you sit on that hosta? Might wanna check your pants.
Are you sure its 'Gold Standard'? It bares(sic) a resemblance to 'August Moon'.

That's not a Gold Standard. That is a Portabella Hosta! Actually, its two Portabella Hostas growing together, so you might want to divide them. :-)
