This non-registered cultivar from
of Connecticut is a seedling selection that grows into a medium size hosta about a foot
tall and a spread of 2 feet. The leaves are narrowly ovate,
slightly wavy and of average substance with reddish petioles.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...features bright red petioles
in combination with gold foliage...catalog listed this as
flowering in July with red scapes, followed by red seed pods."
The originator made the following comment on the
of Seedy Fellows website: "A small to medium sized plant, H. 'Madam' is no shrinking violet.
Emerging chartreuse, with a few hours of sun she brightens to a glowing neon
gold, with strong, direct, spade-shaped leaves, some red on the outside
petioles, but perhaps the most exciting feature is the way the deep red scapes
come slipping out seductively from underneath the leaves, in the heat of July.
Fertile, her pods develop the same deep color as the scapes, and with a half-day
of sun her leaves will take on a mellow candle-glow yellow. Available from
