This variety of hosta is known for its striking, central yellow flash inside of its outer blue-green margins. It can take time for the plant to mature and fully develop this contrast, but it is quite impressive when it does.
Its leaves are of a mostly smooth texture with gentle ribbing and are slightly-cupped.
During the blooming season, a singular or very limited number of racemes, or central stalks, carry the pale white or off-white flowers upward.
These plants grow from a central clump and the leaves spread out to provide a dense, shaded groundcover. Because of this, they are very good to use in border areas to control weed growth.
Hostas can be divided every two to four years in order to thin or transplant. Dividing the plants helps to encourage more vigorous growth and allows the plants an appropriate amount of space to fully develop.
They are relatively disease-free. However, slugs and snails are pests that are attracted to the plants and also appreciate the groundcover hostas offer. A suggested organic method to deal with these pests, is to this is spray a nematoid-filled solution on the soil around the hostas. These worm-like creatures will organically dispose of these pests.
