Radiant Edger

Hosta "Radiant Edger" review

7" tall. Part Sun to Light Shade. Chartreuse margin on medium green leaf. Has a very neat appearance and sharply defined colors. A must for all hosta collections. Medium lavender flowers in mid. June. Medium green leaves with a variable width gold margin streaking somewhat to the midrib. Flowers cluster at the top of the 29" scapes. A small gold leaf with muted gold margin. A nice border plant. This 1990 introduction is a sport of the popular Hosta 'Gold Edger' with heart shaped golden leaves with a dramatic dark green center. Hosta 'Radiant Edger' is slower growing than its parent, but with the same wonderful flat mounding shape. The color contrast in the leaves makes this a real standout. The 30" wide clump is topped with light lavender flowers in early summer. Medium green leaves with a varible chartreuse margin and lavender flowers. A sport of 'Gold Edger'. Heart shaped dark green leaves with a wide gold margin. Excellent form and color contrast. Lavender flowers. Sport of 'Gold Edger'. Nice contract between margin and center of foliage. Excellent ground cover or specimen plant. (Plant 35x14) A small eye-grabber, the green leaves are stunningly edged in bright gold. Lavender flowers. Found in tissue culture of Gold Edger. Medium size plant, bright green leaves with equally bright bold margins, lavendar flowers, outstanding.
