This hosta is one of the best for me in substance, appearance, slug resistance, and form. I might add that 3 out of 7 seedlings from Inniswood turned out to be gold.

Bright foliage, good resistance, heavily corrugated gold centered foliage makes this med-large mound a good a plant for my garden.

Always the last Hosta to appear in spring. Sport of 'Sun Glow' discovered at Inniswood Metro Garden in Columbus Ohio. Flowers are extremely attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds.

Almost slug-proof -- last to be damaged, very little slug damage ever noticed. Very slow to increase.
