Hosta Captain Kirk




Product Description

[L] What do hosta collectors and Star Trek fans have in common? They are both passionate, nearly to the point of being crazy! This beautiful sport from ‘Gold Standard’ links the two worlds together and is the basis of a number of Trekkie-themed hostas. The heavy leaves emerge almost solid green, but the center soon begins to lighten. With just a bit of sun, the narrow leaf centers turn gold by late spring and can become creamy-yellow with more light. Regardless of the center color, the wide, dark green leaf margins make 'Captain Kirk' a standout plant that holds up well all season. Grows fast to form a mound about 18" tall and 3' across. Pale lavender flowers.

(K. Brill - 1999)
