DetailsStarts the season with leaves that are chartreuse and turns to a very bright gold later. It's rounded 5" leaves that are deeply cupped, puckered, and held upright give it a sculptural look. Heavy substance provides good slug resistance. Leathery, heavily rugose leaves have a unique sheen. Flared, violet flowers on a 18" scape in July. One of the best gold-yellow hostas. This is a cross of H. 'Frances Williams' and H. 'August Moon.'
