This is a hosta that is supposed to get green outer edges and a bright yellow in the center. The first season I had it became kinda green on green with lightly packed divisions.
In 2015 I moved it to the Raised Wall where there was a half days light on the east side in the hopes that it would improve. It kinda did! It became bright pastel yellow with a distinctly corrugated surfaced leaf that was very tightly packed. My gut feeling at this time is that it is so tightly packed the scapes can't escape to be seen! Even in its sun bleached condition it is a very lovely plant to consider.
7/1/17*: To date the plant sits at about 6 inches in diameter and is not expanding beyond that. On July 3rd I divided the plant and placed 5d where it originally was, placed 10d in the raised bed, and gave one to a neighbor who's children were doing a Fairy Garden. I was actually surprised that I was able to get that many divisions out of it!
