Hosta 'Goddess of Athena'
 

Introduced by Bob Kuk of Kuk's Forest in Ohio in 1987, this cultivar is a chartreuse margined version of H. 'Decorata' (self-pollinated seedling). It is a medium size (16 inches high by 30 inches wide) plant with dark green leaves that have chartreuse margins that change color during the season. The bell-shaped, purple flowers are fertile and borne on 28 inch scapes in late summer followed by viable seeds.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Superb for woodland planting or ground cover as it increases fairly rapidly...Leaf margin is creamier than its parent. Plant is more rhizomatous than most hostas."
