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
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.
