Info18" tall. Light Shade to Shade.
A magnificent round, puckered large, yellow with green margin.
From the hosta queen Mildred Seaver, comes a plant that everyone has been trying to find. H. 'Lucy Vitols' is essentially a dwarf version of H. 'Color Glory'. The heavily corrugated golden leaf is accented by a very wide dark green border. In early summer, the 2' wide clumps are topped with 16" scapes of pale lavender flowers. Just like Mildred... you'll remember Lucy when you see her!
A choice, round and puckered heavy-textured plant, leaves have yellow centers and very dark green margins, makes a great specimen plant.
Mildred Seaver regards this as one of her best hybrids. Gold leaves are a combination of heavy substance, seersuckered, and round with a wide, very dark green margin. Light lavender flowers in early summer.
The heavily textured leaves have intense corrugation; centers are yellow green, encompassed by a narrow green margin. An excellent plant!
Medium, green yellow to yellow leaves with narrow green margins, some irrgular streaking to midriff. Heavy texture, rugose, pale lavendars flowers in July.
