Hosta of the Day - 'Gypsy Rose'
The hosta 'Gypsy Rose' is named after Gypsy Rose Lee, who was famous for her burlesque act. Which is fitting, since 'Gypsy Rose' is a sport of the hosta 'Striptease'. For those of you out there who have a naughty section in your theme gardens, yes I know you are out there, you should have either a 'Gyspy Rose' or a 'Striptease' or both in your garden. The hosta 'Gypsy Rose' has a wide dark green margin, and the center of the hosta starts off as light green and lightens to yellow as summer progresses. There is also a very thin line of white between the margin and center color. 'Gypsy Rose' is a medium sized hosta, and would be great paired with gold or chartreuse hostas.
