InfoThis towering seedling from the Wards resembles a gold version of its classic parent, 'Sagae'.
Broad, wavy leaves are strongly veined and glossy.
The heavy foliage forms a stately, vase shaped mound about 30" tall and 60" across that blooms with near white, fertile flowers in early summer.
Hosta 'Ivory Tower' excels as a background or specimen plant, and brings some drama to the garden
