Hosta 'Buttercup'


Originated by Dr. Ralph (Herb) and Dorothy Benedict of Michigan and registered on their behalf by Rod Kuenster and The American Hosta Society in 2010, this cultivar is of unidentified parentage.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar is a self-pollinated seedling of H. 'Frances Williams' and is a sibling of H. 'Dorothy Benedict' from the same batch of seeds.

It is a large size hosta about 22 inches high by 42 inches wide with golden yellow foliage. The nearly round leaves are moderately cupped, moderately folded and moderately corrugated with golden yellow petioles. Near white flowers bloom from mid-July into August on scapes up to 34 inches tall. The viability of the seeds was unknown at the time of registration.
