When I hear 'oldie but a goodie', this plant usually comes to mind. I know this hosta used to be hugely popular, I'm wondering if very many of us still grow it. This is actually my very first hosta ever acquired. I bought a tiny plant (this one pictured) back in 2009, and this is it a couple of weeks ago. Last summer, after being bitten by the hosta bug and discovering how many hosta there actually are, I dug it up to amend the clay it was growing in. To my unpleasant surprise, it basically fell apart into 3 segments as I was cleaning the clay from it's roots. I jumped on the internet and learned that it was easily divided, and so I planted the separate pieces a bit spaced from one another. Voila, it looks pretty nice this year. I love it's shade of green, and those gold/yellow margins that hold their color all season.
Does anyone like this cultivar as much as I do? Anyone have any pics of theirs?
Does anyone still grow it??
P.S.: I do like 'Twilight', but I must admit, I prefer it's parent plant. ; )
