Mark Zilis of Illinois registered this
tissue culture sport of H. 'Golden Sunburst' in
1985. It is a large size hosta with yellow leaves which
suffer from the drawstring effect later in the season. Bell-shaped,
near white flowers bloom in clusters from late June into July.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...found in the early days of hosta tissue culture,
before anyone realized that some white margined mutants
out of tissue culture would develop the drawstring
effect...not only puckers and tears at maturity, but is
also develops spring desiccation burn!"

staff naturalist at Morton Arboretum near Chicago, IL.
