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 selection has thick leaves of golden yellow, with a contrasting wide, streaky border of deep green. Midsummer blooms are lavender mauve. Fairly sun tolerant, give morning sun for best colour. While deer enjoy eating Hosta, this variety may be slightly less palatable to deer than others. A sport of the popular variety H.‘Gold Standard'.
