DetailsThe rounded, fluorescent leathery, golden leaf is encircled by a dramatic dark green border. Cupped and heavily puckered. It appears to be faster-growing than its famous parent H. 'Maui Buttercups.' Each small, 16" wide clump is topped in early summer with an 18" tall scape of light lavender flowers. Sun-resistant, slug-resistant, and fast-growing. This is truly a stunning and distinctive new hosta. Hosta of the Year in 2013.

- love the varigation
I love this plant. Mine gets AM sun and has grown well. The contrast of green and gold is striking and I like that the gold center is so broad.

- An unexpected feature in deep shade
The color and character of Rainforest Sunrise brighten up my deep shade garden. It looks as though there is a little light shining on it. I am also very pleased that leaves do not brown on the edges in my hot dry summer. I love this hosta! I got it from Hostas Direct last year and it is already a star in my garden!

- Solid plant
I planted this in a darker spot of my shade garden and it really rises to the occasion of bringing some sunshine into the landscape.
