One of the finest hostas ever introduced. It has huge (over 1' across) chartreuse leaves that change to medium gold in sun, which it tolerates better than most other hostas do. Masses of lavender flowers on 3' scapes appear in midsummer. The list of accolades is impressive: AHG 2004 Hosta of the Year. AGM winner. GPP award.

Not for the tiny woodland garden since the impressive chartreuse foliage can create mounds 6' wide. Wonderful combined with Rodgersias and ferns.
