Purchased this from Plant's Delight & it is one of the most beautiful & prolific of all my hostas. The green & yellow is so intense with each passing year, & it grows so fast that it always stops visitors in their tracks. Seems to respond well to compost & manure amendment.

I just received this hosta from a fellow gardener this summer and I absolutely love it. The variegation is stunning. Now I want it to grow quickly so I can divide it and put it in other places, too. :)
Hosta of the Year - named by the American Hosta Growers' Association - 1999.
