let's give a cheer for the dark greens
Your mileage might vary, but I have several hosta that are a jungle dark green. I sometimes call it a "jet green" as similar to "jet black." There are some which are shiny, and thus you get a polished leaf look. Then the duller jet green. I figure these guys are the work horses of the hosta clan, which in masses are great background plants, punctuated with brighter hosta which give the focal point. But when they are all featured individually, they shine like a lump of coal about to become a diamond.
I have quite a few of them, always trying to see which will be the darkest. Would you care to show your dark stars of YOUR garden? Not every hosta can be about sweetness and light. The dark side adds another element, a depth to the shade, a mystery when it is the center of attention.
Clear Fork River Valley...all this darkness, no slug bites, and it sets seed too? I mean, what else can it have!
Bulletproof....a non reflective dark green. Caught it when there was no rain to give it a shine.
and then last December, here is the color before dormancy
Lakeside Lollipop....I am smitten with this one. Distinct when you see the plant with its lollipop shape and dark color
Lakeside Black Satin is lovely, the dark green has a sheen to it which creates its own light
One Man's Treasure is a great plant, growing very dark green here. But in more sun it brightens up
I have more of the dark ones, but you put yours here first. I'd love to see them. The dark greens can turn a northern garden into a tropical paradise. Especially with the help of some frilly ferns arcing around them.
