Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form sturdy mounds of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This mid-sized specimen selection has bright golden-yellow leaves with a bold blue-green margin. Pale lavender flowers appear in July. Suitable also for planting in mixed containers or tubs. Hosta go completely dormant in the fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid spring. Easily divided in either spring or fall, but plants may be left alone for years. Good slug resistance. Registered by Walden West/C. Purtymun in 1999. Formerly known as H. ‘Abiqua Paradigm'. Selected as the 2007 Hosta of the Year by the American Hosta Growers Association.
