This hybrid of H. 'Kabitan' × H. 'Hadspen Heron' was registered
British Hosta and Hemerocallis Society on behalf of the originator,
Eric Smith in 1988. It grows
into a medium size hosta about 16 inches in height by 40
inches wide. The moderately wavy leaves start the spring bright
gold and turns green as the season progresses. Very pale
lavender flowers bloom in August followed by viable seeds.
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "Origin: H. 'Lancifolia' × H. sieboldii 'Kabitan'...The brilliant golden leaves are at their best
in early summer."
