Stephen King

Alttara Scheer on Stephen King….

It was the pinnacle of my breeding for that color combo. It was going to be a watershed moment towards my next goals.

Stephen King = Maya Kingsnake x unnamed hybrid from Alttara Scheer’s program, according to Scheer,  the unnamed hybrid came from a plant code numbers of her system to track crosses and they were all from her own lines.

…a medium green Hosta with lavender-purple flowers and grows in sun/shade, red petioles and black scapes
