This hybrid of H. 'Aspen
Gold' × an H. 'Golden Chimes' seedling was registered by
Dr. Charles Purtymun
and Jay Hyslop
of Walden West Nursery of Oregon in 1999. The clump of
blue-green (changing to greenish-yellow as the
season progresses) foliage, grows about 8 inches high (small
size) and 22
inches wide. Its leaves are broadly ovate and dull on top. The near-white flowers bloom in
late June in Oregon. It is sterile and does not produce seeds.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...gives the impression of being a bright gold 'Tokudama'-type."
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states in its Hosta Hybrids for Connoisseurs chapter: "Rare,
but worth seeking out for its unusual, subtle leaf
color...Subtle grayish bloom distinguishes it from
those with golden-yellow leaves."
