|Info||Drawn Butter was hybridized and registered by Nancy Krul of Belle Gardens. |
It has medium rich dark gold leaves with lightly rippled margin. Leaves are 2.75 inches
wide and 5.4 inches long with 6 pairs of moderately prominent veins.
Will grow to 25 inches in diameter and 17 inches high.
Scapes are dark maroon and 22 inches tall with long pale purple blooms.
Semi-shiny leaves start out greenish-gold and change to a rich deep golden color, they have good substance, a rippled margin and are slightly wavy. Pale purple flowers are held on scapes about the semi-upright clump.
We generally avoid yellow and gold Hosta, but every once in a while one has enough merit to be offered. Plant starts out with greenish-gold leaves in the spring, but soon becomes a beautiful deep golden color. Add good substance, a rippled margin, and a semi-gloss surface and you get the idea that this one is a winner.
