Hosta 'Yellow River'


Forming a large, upright mound of thick textured, rippled foliage, this cultivar was registered by Peter Ruh of Sunnybrook Farms in Ohio on behalf of English hybridizer, Eric Smith in 1993. It grows to about 24 inches in height with a spread of around 50 inches with medium green foliage that medium yellow marbled marginal variegation. White, tubular flowers bloom in late July.

This registration was modified in 1995.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Moderate to good growth rate. Late to emerge. Ideal for a woodland planting with shrubs or as a specimen. A classic hosta which has never been overshadowed by modern introductions."

"AHS Benedict Award, 1989, exhibited by Van Wade. Ruh (1985) reports seeing this unregistered cultivar in Julie Morss' garden (UK). Burto (1989) relates it was sent by Paul Aden to Herb Benedict around 1980."
