Hosta 'Abiqua Recluse'

This cultivar is the result of cross breeding H. 'White Vision' × H. 'Sum and Substance'. It was registered in 1989 by Dr. Charles Purtymun at Walden West Nursery in Oregon. The foliage starts the season yellow and changes to a darker golden color later. A large size hosta, the clump grows to about 23 inches in height by 48 inches wide. The leaves have good substance and moderate corrugation. Its near-white flowers bloom in July.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Lutescent. Colors best in some sun, but site in afternoon shade in very hot climates. A slow to moderate increaser."
