The “Golden Waffles” have a very electric green colour to their leaves. The flower like other hostas is composed of small grouping of bell-shaped flowers on the top of a raceme or stalk which comes out of the central clump of the plant. The flower is a soft whitish to very pale lavender or purple colour.
This variety has broad, heart-shaped leaves. And there is a slight rippling-effect between the ribs of the leaves themselves.
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.
