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.
