Hosta 'Band of Gold'

A cross of H. 'Dorothy Benedict' × H. hypoleuca, this cultivar was registered by Dr. Ed Elslager of Michigan in 1999. The foliage is slightly rippled, slightly cupped and heart shaped. It forms a large size (21 inches high by 26 inches wide) mound with near white flowers in July to early August.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Moderate growth rate...The wider ivory-white margin is in striking contrast to the spinach green base color which the feathering enhances. The raceme is very attractive and enhanced by the pale anthers."
