InfoThis dark green centered sport of the yellow gold 'Sweet Sunshine' makes a great fragrant-flowered hosta even better. It is very vigorous of course, but also maintains the cupping and puckering in the now variegated leaves. It has the look of a 'Tokudama' with the bonus of near white fragrant flowers in June and July.
