This is one of the finest of the Seaver introductions. The glossy green leaves are bordered with a wide creamy yellow band that changes to cream. The red flower scape adds a striking feature to the 40" wide clump. The clumps are topped with dark purple flowers in very late summer.

A medium sized plant with glossy dark green foliage with creamy yellow to white margins that may streak into the center. Flowers are purple and scapes are spotted purple.
One of my favorite yellow-edged hostas, the glossy leaves have excellent form and substance. It becomes downright stunning when in flower. The dark scapes with purple flowers add the finishing touch to make the perfect complement!
