This fast growing sport of H. 'Gold Standard' was registered by
Amanda Blake from Australia in 2012. It is a medium size plant (18 inches
high by 50 inches wide) with slightly blue-green foliage with a
golden yellow marginal variegation. The leaves are ovate,
lightly wavy and dull on top. Pale lavender, tubular flowers
bloom in January to February in Australia which would be June to
July in the Northern Hemisphere (I think).
An article by Warren I. Pollock in
Hosta Journal (2014 Vol. 45 No. 1) states
that, "Amanda Blake grows hostas in Lower Barrington, Tasmania in down-under
Australia…lived in America (North
Carolina) for 40 years, then came back home in
2008…now has about 450 hostas in the shade-house in her nursery, Hos-Tas…When I
thought of the name ‘Abracadabra’, I looked up the meaning and it means ‘create
as I say’."
Don't confuse this with H.
Isle Abracadabra' which was also once known as 'Abracadabra'
before being renamed.
