Hosta Leather Sheen

By Zillis/Lohman – 1988

Isn’t hybridizing amazing? This is a cross between Sum and Substance and Venusta.  This small hosta can form patches but remains low growing. The pointy leaves are very dark green, one of the darkest of any hosta, and very shiny. They have a nice heavy substance, like leather, that resists snail damage. Lavender bells appear in July.

Hosta June

‘June’ is a ‘Halcyon’ sport and has lovely gold centered leaves with wide blue-green margins and excellent pest resistance and substance. The plant was discovered in TC and introduced by the British company Neo Plants in 1991. It is more apt to hold its color in cooler climates but may fade where it is warmer. It is one of the last hostas to go into dormancy. Flowers are lavender. The sports from ‘June’ include: ‘Kiwi Gold Star’, ‘May’, ‘English Sunrise’ (Prev. all gold). ‘Remember Me’ (white-centered), and ‘Touch of Class’ (tetraploid form). There is some debate about whether there is more than one sport being sold under the ‘June’ name. Certainly the plant responds to the season and to the prevailing light conditions very readily.

Hosta Country Mouse

By Hans Hanson – 2007

Country Mouse is a really cute sport of Bill’s Dress Blue that was developed in Minnesota. It is a miniature hosta that gets no taller than 3 inches. It has a heart shaped blue/green leaf with a white edge. The 15 inch tall scapes of lavender flowers appear in mid-summer and are loved by hummingbirds. Great for rock gardens, containers and woodland paths. It is a good grower and the leaves are on the thick side so they aren’t bothered as much by slugs or sun scald.

Daylily Valley Monster

By L.K. Powell – 1983

This 33 inch tall dormant, tetraploid has a big, yellow, 9 inch flower.  It is a mid-season bloomer that reblooms in the late season.  It’s not registered as such but it does have a red blush on the ends of the petals that blends inwards, and has a bright green throat.  The cinnamon blush can be darker or more pale and sometimes the petals curl back so much that you may not notice it unless you view it from the side.

Daylily Heavenly Curls

By Gossard – 2000

This creamy white spider/unusual form daylily twists and turns in all directions because it is both crispate, cascading and spatulate. It is a dormant, diploid that is 27 inches tall with a 7 inch bloom and bud count; 12 buds on 2 branches. It is a mid-season bloomer. The bright green throat draws the eye to it and then the rest of it makes the observer say “wow!” Because they have species H. Citrina in their background they will have characteristics like vigor, fragrance and a nocturnal opening. They will open during the night and then last the whole next day.
