Hosta 'Orange Marmalade'

Sport of the famous and highly-rated H. 'Paul's Glory.' It is unique in that it is brightly variegated all season long. The leaf center emerges a glowing yellow-gold, about the color of H. 'June.' Later turning a golden-orange, the result of an extra orange pigment in the leaf center. As summer approaches, the leaf center turns yellow and ultimately white in more light. We recommend you keep it out of direct afternoon sun to keep it more orange. The pale lavender flowers have a midrib on the petal only and slightly darker. Pale lavender flowers on 3-foot scapes from mid-July into early August. Orange is a rare color in hostas! Will be in demand for years to come!
