Re: Gold Standard vs Richland Gold Splash....

Richland Gold is the all-gold form of Gold Standard and Richland Gold
Splash is simply the reversion back to Gold Standard. Since the plant and
coloration came from a different pathway ( different from Gold Standard,
which originated from Hyacinthina )  it is technically a different plant
but actually in color and growth - identical. Keep an eye on it and let us
know if it develops distinguishing characteristics.

'Brenda's Beauty' began looking better or distinct from 'Something
Different' but now they are very similar though they grow at different
pace. Brenda's Beauty is a little faster to mature - but same parentage,
Gold Standard. Something Different seems to hold its vein color longer and
more distinct, though very close. Sometimes microclimate makes them look

     The fun of the hosta world.

Gold Standard vs Richland Gold Splash can anybody out there explain
the visible
differences between these two.  I have both planted in an alternating
fashion and
as far as I am concerned they are identical.  I was told last  year
when I
received them that their year end colors look very similar and it
would be almost
impossible to distinguish them at that time of year... Well it's
spring and I am
wondering what I am missing.

I have not done much research on it yet but I am learning a thing or
two along
the way.  Is not Richland Gold a sport of Gold Standard?   And I
believe that
Richland Gold Splash is a sport of Richland Gold.  So the blood lines
similar.  What should I be looking for?

Just wondering!?!?!?
