Hosta 'Cardwell Yellow'

This cultivar with an  H. 'Sieboldiana' background was imported from Japan by Gus Krossa of Michigan in 1968 and was known as H. 'Krossa F-9'. Subsequently, Peter Ruh of Ohio registered it on Gus' behalf in 1981.

The large size hosta grows to about 26 inches in height and 5 feet in diameter with heavily corrugated foliage. It bears near white flowers in dense clusters from late June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Peter Ruh named this cultivar after Gus Krossa's street when he lived in Livonia, Michigan."
