'Illicit Affair' is one of my "naughty" hostas. I believe it's on the AHS mini list, though I don't think of mine as a mini. It's a sport from 'Cheatin Heart' and I've had it since 2008. It emerges Chartreuse and the leaf centre gradually darkens up leaving a small yellow margin. My plant is actually three divisions planted together which makes it look fuller than a single plant and also makes it easier to divide a bit if I wish. Please feel free to share your pictures of this hosta.
