Hosta 'Orange Marmalade'

This tissue culture sport of H. 'Paul's Glory' was registered by Bob Solberg of Green Hill Farm in North Carolina in 2002 and was also granted U.S. Plant Patent 16742. It is a large size (20 inches high by 45 inches wide) mound of slightly corrugated foliage that has pale lavender flowers from mid-July into August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar " quickly becoming one of the most widely grown hosta cultivars. It offers a much brighter mound of foliage over the whole growing season than its mother plant, 'Paul's Glory'."

An article in The Hosta Journal (2016 Vol. 47 No. 2) states that this also sold under the Tradename or Trademark of H. CITRINE SUPREME.
