InfoIf you ask me today, this is my favorite hosta. It just makes me smile. It has the cutest round leaves that are full of personality and an unique rich yellow color.
It has pink petioles and surprisingly heavy substance.
It makes a small tight mound perfect in a pot or a special place in the garden.
Red scapes and rich purple flowers with reddish tubes appear in July.
Fertile both ways.
Becomes white in sun, remains yellow in shade.
