Hosta "Sally and Bob" review

'Bob and Sally'. This beauty was named for an incredibly gracious couple from Indianapolis. Sally was instrumental to both local and regional hosta societies as a premier newsletter editor as well as managing a spectacular display garden of top shelf hosta! A 18"x30" clump that bears pinkish white flowers will grow into a real showpiece, not to mention yield some dandy seedlings if you are so inclined! Springing from a cross of Hosta 'William Lachman' x Hosta 'Fascination' it boasts luscious, white-streaked green leaves that form an impressive 30 in. mound of colorful foliage. Fertile flowers, ready for pollen, grace tall petioles in July. True to its parentage, the "fascination" is how many different looks one can get from this magnificent breeder. In a long row of seedlings observed in the originator’s garden, each one was unique.
