Happy Dayz

Hosta "Happy Dayz" review

This is a sport from Hosta 'Orange Marmalade' we found several years ago and thought it to be a tetraploid but testing has proven that is not the case. The leaves are thicker and the bluish-green border is wider than the parent. The leaf center is a bright yellow but fades to a parchment color and shows some variability from plant to plant. I would put this in the "unique and interesting to look at category" as it will be different.
