Hosta 'Shirley Wade'

A sport of H. 'Spellbound', this cultivar was registered by Dr. Dick and Jane Ward of Ohio in 2008. The medium size (14 inches high by 40 inches wide) hosta has bright gold colored foliage that is very thick in substance. Its leaves are ovate, somewhat cupped and heavily corrugated. Near white flowers bloom from late June into July.

Named in honor of Shirley Wade, the wife of noted hosta hybridizer and nurseryman, Van Wade of Wade and Gatton Nursery (Closed 2019) of Ohio.
