This hybrid of H. 'Frances Williams' × H. 'August Moon' was registered by
William Vaughn of
Illinois in 1991 and is part of the "Maui
Series" of hostas. This medium size (12 inches high) mound of heavily corrugated,
cupped leaves has near white flowers in July followed by viable
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...has achieved great popularity in
recent years and rightly so...Its mature characteristics are not
what you would expect from a cross of 'Frances Williams' x 'August
Moon', two large size cultivars."
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "Slow to establish but eventually has a moderate
growth rate. A superb small yellow-leaved hosta having great presence in the
garden...A noticeable hyaline (translucent) line around the leaf edge.
Very large leafy bracts along the scape and around the raceme."
