Liberty Bell

Hosta "Liberty Bell" review

Streaked breeder:***** Green irregularly. Lance shaped leaves of green with white streaking. Rare Benedict streaked miniature. This small plant has both a margin and creamy streaking throughout the center of the leaves. It is a vigorous growing F1 child of Hosta 'Yellow Splash' with pointed ovate leaves. It is both a collector's plant, and a plant of breeding interest. Sinfully fertile while tending to yield an unusually high percentage of streaked seedlings while intensifying any degree of red or purple in BOTH the scapes and petioles found in the pollen parent.
