Hosta 'Gold Regal'

Paul Aden introduced this hybrid cultivar in 1970. It is a giant sized (32 inches high) plant with pale green leaves in the spring that changes to chartreuse as the summer progresses. The leaves are slightly wavy, moderately corrugated and slightly cupped with good substance. It produces medium lavender, bell-shaped flowers which are fertile and borne on 50 inch tall scapes in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Though 'Gold Regal' was registered thirty-four years ago, I continue to think of it in the upper echelon of hosta cultivars. It can be used in many ways in the landscape, but is most impressive as a specimen plant."
