'Holly's Green and Gold'

This cultivar is part of the "Holly Series" of hostas from Gladys Holly  and Eunice V. Fisher, both of Wisconsin. It was registered on their behalf by Peter Ruh of Ohio in 1997 as a sport of H. 'Frances Williams'. The large size plant (20 inches high by 50 inches wide) has blue-green foliage with a gold marginal variegation. Its leaves are moderately corrugated and have thick substance. Near white flowers in dense clusters bloom from mid-June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...does not seem to develop spring desiccation burn. More testing in a wider variety of sites is necessary to see if this holds true."

An article titled Too Many Lookalikes by Bob Keller in The Hosta Journal (2010 Vol. 41 No. 2) states that, "There are many registered 'Frances Williams' lookalikes including H. 'Aurora Borealis', H. 'Squash Edge', 'Holly's Green and Gold', 'Golden Circles' and 'Olive Bailey Langdon', as well as some unregistered ones."
