This hosta is one of our earliest golds, blooming with white flowers in early summer. The foliage mound may be 15" wide by as much as 3' wide. From Vivian Grapes, it was registered in 1986. The plant appears to have both 'Tokudama' and sieboldiana in its ancestry. The leaves are round-cordate, very cupped, and rugose. It needs a little shade to do well and have the best color. There is a very slight frost of green on the gold leaves. Van Wade regards it as having some of the most puckering between veins of any hosta he knows. It is known for its bloom and long lasting color.
