Hosta 'Light of Zetar'

Dirk Dupré from Belgium registered this hybrid of H. 'Fat Boy' in 2011 and was re-registered with new data in 2018. The medium size plant (16 inches high by 24 inches wide) has golden yellow foliage. Its nearly round leaves are slightly shiny on top, slightly cupped, slightly corrugated and have thick substance. Near white, tubular flowers bloom on scapes 18 to 22 inches tall from July into August followed by viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "...very thick substance and bright yellow colour...changes from greenish yellow to golden yellow..."

This cultivar was originally registered as a sport of H. 'Jade Beauty'.
