From Indiana breeding sensation Olga Petryszyn, comes this stunning new gold leaved hosta (H. nigrescens x O.P. x H. 'Blue Whirls'). H. 'Golden Gate' makes a 52" wide clump of very large and thick, pointed, shiny golden foliage. In early spring, the clumps are topped with medium lavender flowers on 44" scapes... a real stunner when used to brighten a dark part of the garden!
For a fast growing goldish clump, 'Golden Gate' cannot be beat. Starting out chartreuse in the spring and turning more gold each week. Plant 'Golden Gate' in more sun than others to intensify the gold. Large shinny leaves have some waving and corrugation. Medium lavender flowers bloom on 3' scapes mid to late summer. Fertile flowers are great to use in creating blues. A great hosta to bridge your gardenís design.
