Does the center get white late summer? It is raining all week and I am moving some Hostas around and June Fever is new to my garden. I plopped it in and thinking of moving it.

I have seen some pics on the web that it looks white or near white and some it looks yellow.

I was wondering how it performed in Hosta growers gardens. Web pics love to photoshop.

I don;t know Paul's pic looks like it is showing white or a light buff color like Gold Standard. By the end of June my GS is almost white.

Look at the pictures on the Hosta Library and google also. I think it may get a parchment look if it gets quite a bit of sun. Exposure Thumbs up

Mine has never been grown in full sun so it doesn't turn white, but I imagine it could if grown in full sun, especially afternoon sun.

Mine was in full sun last year and no white what so ever. Just bright yellowish green.

Thank you. I am going to put it in some sun. I am looking for parchment or bright yellow in this bed.
