Here's a puzzle...

jamie81(4b)August 15, 2013

I am looking through the listing at Venero Nursery, and I see the most gorgeous hosta. Cornbelt. Just a beautiful picture. The description does not match the picture. I tried to find some information on it, and I didn't really find anything here.

The hosta library pictures have to be a totally different hosta. has the same beautiful picture as Venero. I am guessing it is not a picture of Cornbelt.

Does anyone grow Cornbelt? More important, does anyone know the name of the hosta they are calling Cornbelt?

I agree that the hosta pictured is not 'Corn Belt'. It has the opposite color combo. I have no idea what hosta it is in the picture, though. Sorry.

Give Dory at Veneros a call. It'll either be her or husband answering.

The hosta photos on the hosta library are all donated. The hosta may not be correctly identified in every photo. It says that on the home page.

Hmmm...looks like Venero has a pic of some other hosta. All the pics on the Hosta Library and in The Hostapedia (page 204) show a gold-centered, green-margined hosta. And the description on the Venero webpage says, "A sport of 'Jimmy Crack Corn', gold foliage with a wide green margin," but their photo doesn't agree.

I agree, that isn't a picture of Corn Belt. Maybe somebody switched the photos when they put the catalog together, I bet they would be able to untangle the puzzle if you called them. Or maybe they bought the photo, as I saw several other nurseries had the identical picture for Cornbelt when I googled it.

I figured it wasn't Cornbelt, but it is such a pretty hosta, just wondered if anyone could identify it. The picture does show up a couple other places, so they probably did buy it.

The pictures at the hosta library match the description, so I would guess that is what Cornbelt really looks like.

I do. It is one of my favorites. I have grown him from a liner and he is a good one.
