InfoA sport discovered in the micropropagation lab. It comes out of H. 'Cheatin' Heart'.
This will be a small Hosta with a green center and gold/chartreuse margins.
She's a real looker!
A new sport of 'Cheatin Heart' with very small, heart-shaped leaves, gold with a green margin. Purple flowers.
A delightful sport of the mini H. 'Cheatin Heart' from Zumbar. Comes up in the spring with bright gold leaves looking just like Cheatin Heart, but then develops a green center. By mid season the center is dark green. Second flush is again initially gold contrasting well with the older leaves. Somewhat larger than 'Cheatin Heart' and vigorous for a mini. The reverse sport, H. 'Stolen Kiss', is also available.
