Description

Details

The 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.

This has become one of my favorite hosta. The leaf color has beautiful contrast. My plants are hardy and on their second year. What I didn't expect were the gorgeous white flowerscapes! They were magnificent! (Posted on August 26, 2016)

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. (Posted on September 2, 2015)

An unexpected feature in deep shade Review by Kirsten

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!
