    • I'm in 9B California redwood coastal mountains--hot/dry summers, wet/cold/windy winters. This hosta was beautiful and healthy when it arrived. Gorgeous ELECTRIC chartreuse yellow/green. THEY WERE AMAZING TO SEE - ALMOST GLOW-IN-THE DARK... I bought two (which were identical when I received them) and created a mirrored symmetrical plan with Mighty Mouse hostas and ferns. The bed was 18"d x 10'w, on the "shady" east side of 3"h picket fence which is sightly under and next to a plexiglass covered pergola on the east side. The south side is my neighbor's garage, some bamboo and a crazy large rose which created more shade on the left (south) on the right side of the bed. However, I had to take down a vine on the pergola and that allowed some direct sunlight to touch directly for a few hours in the summer afternoon. I say all this, because I got to observe the slightly different conditions on the same plant in the same bed. Right after planing I unfortunately had to cut a large vine from the pergola. This allowed a lot of hot diffused summer sun in, and at the highest part of summer some direct rays to hit the specimen on the RIGHT, which GOT VERY YELLOW AND PALE, while the one on the LEFT STAYED MORE CHARTREUSE/GREEN. Is not unusual for plants to fade in sun. BOTH GREW FAST and full!, The one on right needed some extra shading for summer until a new vine grew back. I had to cut both all the way back at winter since the leaves got slimy. We'll see if it comes back. My area may not be suited for hostas.

    • Love! This is such a gorgeous gold/chartreuse hosta. It's one of my favorites in my shade garden to add a bright pop to a dark corner!

    • LEAVES grow out YELLOW, NOT bright GREEN...I had seen this Hosta in Laura's garden on Garden Answer and was looking forward to the bright chartreuse green of the leaves. After planting it in the spring, I was disappointed to see the leaves turn yellow after they got about 4 1/2 inches long. I have Chocolate Covered Cherry Coleus planted around the Hosta. Their color is bright and beautiful. They have the same needs as the Hosta and get the same amount of morning sun, water and fertilizer. In hindsight, I am looking very carefully at the pictures on Proven Winners website and where there are other plants with the Hosta in the pictures, I can see how the other plants are a dark green. But to me, this just makes the Hosta look like it is a bright green (not yellow) in contrast. (I realize colors can look different on computer screens than what is in real life.) Also in hindsight, I am carefully reading the description of the plant. It says the foliage colors are "yellow" and the foliage shade is "gold." It also talks about "GOLD leaves with wavy edges” and how the “GOLD coloring becomes brighter in morning sun" (emphasis added). In my experience, the leaves are a plain, almost sickly, yellow, especially with the contrast of the newly emerging bright green leaves. In hindsight (again) I searched Garden Answer and, in her April 30, 2019, YouTube video called "Planting Coast to Coast Hostas!" Laura talks about the gold color of the leaves, but they look bright green to me. Because this plant did not grow as it had been presented, I wanted to give it a one star-rating, but I take responsibility for not paying better attention to the Proven Winners description, so I am upping it to a four-star rating. I hope this review helps others find the plant that will work for them or avoid a plant that will not work for them.

    • This cultivar was planted by myself in the chinese garden located in Botanica, the Wichita Gardens. It has done wonderfully. This is the second spring and it is looking fabulous. I'm really happy with how well the plant is doing.
