Hosta 'Designer Genes'

Rich red petioles distinguish this seedling of H. 'Miss Susie' that was registered by Arthur Wrede of Maryland in 2005. The fast growing medium size plant reaches a height of about 12 inches and spreads to 28 inches wide with ovate shaped leaves. Its foliage starts the season bright gold in color but changes to light green later. The leaves are ovate, slightly wavy and have faint corrugation with purple-red petioles. Purple flowers on crimson red scapes bloom from mid-July into August.

This was the hosta given to those who attended the National Convention of The American Hosta Society in Philadelphia, PA in 2006.
