Hosta mystery solved!

10 comments


I was at my wits end, and having spent hours browsing I decided to contact Mickfield, as I am a good customer of theirs.

So they confirmed my suspicions. The Hosta is H.fortunei ‘Albopicta’. They described it perfectly for me. Phew!

I do like everything to have it’s name! :))

I love it when members add the names, over the years I have managed to name many plants and shrubs without even asking myself...

Well, theres a thing. I actually bought one last year, not knowing it was the same as Ron's. And the one I bought has really struggled. Its looking a bit pathetic. And its planted very close to this one!
