InfoThe beginning of the next generation of red and yellow hostas. It is the largest of this very excellent and varied group of seedlings and has bright yellow leaves with bright red petioles and scapes. It keeps it's yellow color very well and will be better in the shade garden as too much light will bleach it white. It is the one that Mark Zilis selected to produce for his nursery. Nice purple flowers on red scapes in July.
