Paul Aden of New York registered this classic, fast growing
hosta in 1978 (the actual originator is unknown, however). It is the result of a cross of H. 'Blue Cadet' × H. 'Gold Cadet' which grows
into a medium size hosta about 13 inches in height and
spreads to 38 inches in width. The color changes from light
green to chartreuse to gold as the season progresses. It bears
medium lavender flowers from late June into July.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...similar to 'Gold
foliage color, mound habit, and flower performance...source of
numerous sports and seedlings."
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "Tolerates full sun all day except in warmer
climates. Leaf color is very dependent upon the quality of the light...As the
name implies, it is a popular edging hosta."
