Hosta 'Golden Teacup'

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

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."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas (2009) states: "Golden color remains longer if grown in some morning sun. Slow but worth the wait as the leaves have an attractive shape and surface texture."
