Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form sturdy mounds of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This midsized specimen selection has bright golden-yellow leaves with a wide, streaky green margin. Pale lavender flowers appear in August. Some direct sun will bring out the best possible colour. Suitable for planting in mixed containers or tubs. Hosta go completely dormant in the fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid spring. Easily divided in either spring or fall. While deer enjoy eating Hosta, this variety may be slightly less palatable to deer than others. A sport of H.‘Guacamole', introduced by Shady Oaks Nursery in Minnesota. Selected as the 2006 Hosta of the Year by the American Hosta Growers Association.
