Introducing: Harry Hippo
I'm very excited to announce my very first new hosta sport discovery. I was at a garden center today, browsing the hostas of course, and spotted a single gold leaf peaking out of a mass of green. On closer inspection I found it to be a gold sport from a hosta labeled "Happy Hippo Giant Hosta" and underneath that it read Hosta x "Tokudama Flavocircinalis"
Of course I had to have it, and with a little work was able to extract the mutant eye. The Happy Hippo leaves had a very strange texture to them, very thick and with an almost papery feel. This gold sport has the same texture.
I named it Harry Hippo because that's the name of the yellow hippo from the game Hungry Hungry Hippos.
