Descriptions (from various sources):
A delightful sport of the mini H. 'Cheatin Heart' from Zumbar. Comes up in the spring with bright gold leaves looking just like 'Cheatin Heart', but then develops a dark green edge (gold centered Hosta) by mid season. Second flush is again initially all gold contrasting l with the older leaves. Somewhat larger than 'Cheatin Heart' and vigorous for a mini. The reverse sport, H. 'Illicit Affair', is also available.
Neat little sport of 'Cheatin Heart'. Hosta has a nice green edge with a bright gold center.
