InfoThis medium Hosta is a rich chartreuse-gold with a wonderful piecrust edge and has deep blue-green veins in the spring.
Exceptional substance on H. 'Gold Star' sport and lavender flowers midseason.
The dramatic long,wide, thick golden leaves are heavily rippled along the border.
Each 28" wide clump is topped with 2' tall spikes of light lavender flowers in late spring.
According to the Hostapedia this sport was selected by Alex Malloy. The leaf margins are more rippled than 'Sea Gold Star' and also have minute serrations.
