Hosta 'Sea Zebra Gold'

Originated by Ran Lydell of Cooks Nursery and Eagle Bay Gardens in New York, this non-registered cultivar is of unidentified parentage but probably is the gold colored sport of H. 'Zebra'. It is a medium size hosta about 12 inches high by 30 inches wide with golden-yellow colored leaves. The leaves are ovate, slightly wavy and slightly corrugated. Pale purple flowers in clusters bloom in July on scapes up to 22 inches tall.

We suspect that this is part of a confusing name situation. According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), the cultivar H. 'Zebra' from Mildred Seaver is sometimes mislabeled as H. 'Sea Zebra' because most of her hostas begin with "Sea". But 'Zebra' was an exception to the rule.
