A new attractive giant, gold leaved Hosta that is sure to please!
Leaf size is about 15" long x 15" wide.
Requires morning sun!
It was the top leaf in the Columbus Central Ohio Hosta Society leaf show in 2004. Near white flowers.
Acts like a brighter, smaller version of 'Sum and Substance' with more heavily corrugated.
It may be hard to believe, but this well-heeled hosta is a seedling of 'Sagae'. (The flowers scapes give it away.) It grows a bit like 'Sum and Substance' but won't get quite that big, getting (only) 4-5' wide. The color is a brighter gold as well.
When Dick Ward received the Eunice Fisher Distinguished Hybridizer Award in 2010, he selected this hosta as his hosta of merit.
