HOSTA OF THE YEAR FOR 2018
Seedling of Komodo Dragon x Super Bowl from the breeding program of Doug Beilstein from 2006. Large upright mound of cupped pale light green foliage turning bright brassy gold. Leaves are 14" long by 10" wide, bright gold, cupped, wavy, corrugated, with an oval shaped blade, good substance. Very pale purple flowers on 24"- 36" scapes in late June to early July. Medium growth rate. We have this one growing in a very sunny spot next to a spruce tree; it jumps out and says "hello" to everyone who walks by. Despite the hot sun the leaves burn very little, they just become brighter in color, starting from a light green in spring to this bright yellow-green in summer.
