HOSTA: Captain Kirk

Hosta Captain Kirk July 2011.

For some reason, I brought home a Hosta named Captain Kirk. 'Captain Kirk' is yet another sport from 'Gold Standard' (which is a 'Hyacinthina' sport itself). from Brill 1999. It was small - probably one gallon pot. Here is a picture of it in 2011.
This hosta suffered sunburn, and eaten by slugs, with small remaining crow.
The entry in Hosta Registrar says Captain Kirk
is a medium size plant with pale lavender flowers.
It does not say it set seed, but looking at parentage Fortunei Hyacinthina, its sport Gold Standard, this hosta may not set seed.
