Hosta 'Golden Teacup'

Registered by Dr. Jim and Jill Wilkins in 1989, this cultivar is a hybrid of Hosta 'Aspen Gold' and Hosta 'Gold Regal'. It medium sized (10 inches high) and has deeply cupped leaves of thick substance. Near white flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...is notable for its combination of deep cupping, corrugation, and gold foliage color. Somewhat surprising is its fairly small size, considering its much larger parents. Its only negative is a very slow growth rate."

Similar cultivars include H. 'American Gold Cup' and H. 'Golden Medallion'.

Sports include H. 'Gilded Teacup'.
