Hosta of the Day -hosta 'Captain Kirk'

Attention all of you Star Trek and hosta fans out there, if you want to add a little Trekian flare to your shade garden then hosta 'Captain Kirk' is a must have.  Even if you are not a Star Trek fan, you'll be very pleased with this hosta.  It is a medium sized hosta with wide green margins and a very prominent gold center.  It's a fast grower.  I had to dig mine up in 2009 and move it to another location.  I also promised a friend a chunk of it.  By last summer it was already back to being a lovely hosta.  The leaves on 'Captain Kirk' are on the thicker side, so it's also another one to plant if you have problems with slugs eating your hostas.

Wow! I had no idea that there was a plant out there with the Captain Kirk title. That's crazy. Does this hosta overact at time?:) Or does it seem to take over the other hostas around him?:) Someone sure had fun with that name. Phasers to stun!

I've heard this hosta is coming out with it's own album soon. Then it's going to pair up with Ben Folds in the studio.
