Hosta 'Waiting in Vein'

Registered by Dr. Doug and Mardy Beilstein of Ohio in 2017, this large size (20 inches high by 45 inches wide) cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Daybreak' × H. 'Blue Angel'. The golden yellow foliage is broadly ovate, slightly wavy and slightly shiny on top. Pale lavender flowers bloom from mid-July into August on scapes up to 30 inches tall followed by viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "...Emerges light green and as the sun intensifies, it morphs to a beautiful gold color with slightly ruffled leaves. The clearly delineated veins are a solid, contrasting, light green. People remark at the vividness...Light green early turning golden yellow later."
