This sport of H. 'Elisabeth' was registered
(2005) and patented by
Gerardus Heemskerk of
Heemskerk Vaste Planten in the
Netherlands. It is a gold colored plant
green marginal variegation that grows into a medium size
(10 inches high by 18 inches wide)
clump. The leaves are narrowly ovate, have a twisted tip and
moderately rippled margins. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July.
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "Slow to average growth rate...Best in a border
with yellow-leaved hostas and dark green ferns.
Divide regularly...Noticeably rippled leaf edges are
unusual in a medio-variegated hosta and add greatly
to its attraction."
This cultivar was registered
