Reverted to all green! I had this hosta for 15 years and it gradually reverted to all green within the 1st 5 years.

If you are looking for a good, fast growing, edger hosta, try Golden Tiara. I started with 3 (18 years ago), gradually divided them until I have about 25 plants now and they are all robust. I have never had any of them revert.

This is one of my oldest hostas and one of the easiest to grow. It is very easy to divide, grows fast and makes a wonderful border plant.
