This amazing small hosta is a sport from Bill Vaughn's amazing dwarf, H. 'Maui Buttercups'. The fluorescent golden leaf is surrounded here by a dramatic border of black-green. This is truly a stunning and distinctive new hosta. Each small 16" wide clump is topped in early summer with a 18" tall scape of light lavender flowers.
This one is a winner and it may be our best introduction to date. It caused a stir at the National Convention in Raleigh. A emerald green edged sport of H. 'Maui Buttercups' that has the same butter yellow leaves. Thick glossy leaves which are very durable throughout the season. The sport is a little more vigorous than the parent and probably will out grow it.
