Hosta "Transformer" review

This plant morphs from a very bright yellow center to an almost solid green plant by mid July. Its transformation is similar to hostas such as Hosta 'Guardian Angel' or Hosta 'Angel Eyes' which gradually go darker as the summer ends, hence, the name 'Transformer'. In late summer it is just another big blue hosta but in the spring it will transform itself again into a beautiful center-variegated mound with streaky blue margins. A sport of 'Blue Angel' it grows well and forms a 4-5 foot clump.
