Description

Details

A bright gold with a slightly rippled margin. The large, moderately twisted, heart-shaped leaves with long petioles and "wavy" upright appearance make 'Key West' an eye-catcher. A member of hybridizer Olga Petryszyn's "America" series. This is a cross between H. nigrescens 'Elatior' and H. 'High Noon.' A mature clump can reach 6' wide. Bright filtered light draws out the gold coloration. (Photos courtesy Olga Petryzyn.)

Key West is great, so it this little plant by the same name. Came packaged perfectly, very healthy with no ill effects from shipping. Followed directions for planting and it's growing well in the ground. (Posted on August 12, 2016)

Slow grower Review by April

This lovely hosta appears to be a bit of slow grower, I had purchased several different types of hostas a short time ago. All of the others have increased in size and have more eyes. (Posted on July 23, 2016)
