A sport of H. 'Hydon
Sunset', this is a non-registered cultivar from
Fransen of the
Netherlands. The small size (8 inches high
by 14 inches wide) plant has dark green leaves with a
bright gold marginal variegation. It bears
purple flowers in July followed by viable seeds.
The Book of Little Hostas by Kathy and Michael Shadrack
(2010) says: "Grows best in dappled shade...Leaves that lose their
margin should be removed to prevent the whole plant's
reverting to green."
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "...margin becomes dull pale green as summer
progresses. Has a tendency to revert so frequent division is
essential. Moderate to rapid growth rate."
