Paul's Glory.....A Few Changed Leaves That All Look the Same

jmcdmdAugust 13, 2014

Sorry I can't post a picture.

My "Paul's Glory" is doing great this year. But since last year I have noticed that several leaves within the plant are taking on a different look. All of these leaves look similar: with one side of the leaf looking like a regular PG leaf, but the other side uniquely different (again....all of these unusual leaves look the same...and the unique side is on the same side of the leaf in each case).

What's going on here?

Is this a new hosta 'sporting' within my current PG? If so, what do I do to separate the two plants [And I'm not even sure that a 'sport' is going on here].

Thanks for your help.

Again, I apologize for not being able to share a photo.

It is a sport, but... I see that from time to time on mine as well, although it doesn't carry over on the same eyes from year to year. Not particularly stable nor attractive (in my case, anyway).

If it's not something you would buy, just hang on. Next year it will probably be gone. If you think it's something unique and people would pay money for, separate it and grow it out for a few years to see what it does. Hosta put out strange leaves all the time. A few are worth keeping, most are not that different from what's already available or very attractive. You get to make the call.
