Hosta Paradise Joyce

By Marco Fransen

Paradise Joyce is a medium sized sport of Halcyon and it is named for Mr. Fransen’s wife. It is blue with a yellow center which becomes more white as the season progresses. The leaves have a “powdery” finish. This hosta holds up well to frost due to it’s heavy substance. Lavender flowers appear in late summer.

Hosta Geisha

By Vaughn 1983

Geisha is also known as Ani Machi which is from Japan.  I think what happened is that it was a sport that was registered but didn’t turn out to be persistent; so it is the same plant.  It is an outstanding selection with yellow to chartreuse centers and dark green margins. This small plant, with glossy leaves, has a distinguished twist to its upright growth habit. The 15 inch flower scapes sport lavender flowers, but they are nicer than the average hosta flowers.  The stamens are long and graceful and they are streaked with white.

Daylily Ruby Stella

Unregistered Imposter

This miniature daylily was sold to me as Ruby Stella years ago at a auction.  A Google search told me that this name is often used for red miniatures when the identity is unknown.  In any case it looks and behaves much like Stella de Oro, except that it is Christmas Red.  It has the same size flowers, same early bloom, same rebloom, but I think it is a little taller.  It looks nice with Cherry Candy as the color is exactly the same as her eye.

Daylily Mardi Gras Parade

By Kroll 1992

This little beauty carries masses of lavender to pink blooms that have a wine colored eyezone and a green throat.  There are actually two bands in the eyezone; the outer band is a deep merlot and the inner one is more of a rose’.  The dormant, diploid plant has 3.5 inch flowers on 20 inch scapes and is an early/mid-season bloomer.  These measurements are smaller than what she is listed at but that is the size she is for us, putting her in the “front of the border” category.  She is pretty, with a lightly ruffled edge and recurved petals and sepals, giving her perfect form.

Daylily Huckleberry Candy

By Stamile 1998

Huckleberry Candy is much like the others in the Candy series.  It is a dormant tetraploid that is 20 inches tall, with a 4.25 inch flower, that blooms early to mid-season.  It is cream to light peach with a violet blue watermark that spreads into a fuchsia eyezone above a chartreuse throat.  Prominent cream colored mid ribs, a lightly ruffled edge and diamond dusting complete the picture.

Hosta Teaspoon

By Nyikos – 1998

A small hosta at 11 inches tall by 24 inches wide it has green roundish cup shaped leaves that are 2 by 3 inches. The leaves are corrugated with a fine serrated edge. Lavender flowers with a green tip appear in Late June. A good grower, so you can use it as a ground cover in front of larger hostas.

Daylily Siloam Show Girl

By Henry – 1981

Daylily Siloam Show Girl

This daylily is supposed to be 18 inches but is smaller for me, 15 inches with 4.25 inch blooms. Not a true miniature or dwarf but a smaller daylily that is comfortable joining the party at the front of the border.

A dormant diploid, it has fire engine red blooms with a deeper red eye zone over a green throat. Heavy substance means extended bloom and these cuties are round, recurved and ruffled to boot.

Hosta Green Sparkler

By Zilis 2010

This small hosta (about 10 inches tall by 2 feet wide when mature) is a sport of Sparkler. It is like one of my favorites, Red October, in that it has red petioles. The difference is that the leaves are bright green, wavy and shiny instead of dark green and glaucous. The flowers are pale purple on 2 foot scapes.
