Hosta Broad Band is an unregistered cultivar from Ron Livingston. It is a hybrid of the streaker 'Splish Splash' and emerges in the spring with a blue-green leaf margined light yellow, which fades to near-white. It makes a very tidy medium-sized clump. A quality plant I was glad to add to my garden.
