The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "This beautiful cultivar comes from the collection

American Hosta Society. It
offers attractive gold edged leaves which nicely contrast the
bluish green center, and may be sun-tolerant as well...Cull any off-type divisions as they appear."

to an all-yellow leaves, so regular division of the clump is necessary."
