Mildred's Smile

Hosta "Mildred's Smile" review

Intense pure yellow, a real eye catcher. It is far more brilliant than 'Sea Fire' or 'Like Butta' in the spring. This is a focal point hosta. You will want to place this to draw the eye to a particular area of your garden. It will take on some green as the summer progesses. The more sun it receives the less it will green. This is an open pollinated 'Mildred Seaver' seedling. It is medium large or approximately 18 inches tall and about 3 feet wide. It sets seed although I have not used this plant in my program and can not comment on it as either a pod or pollen parent.
