Yellow River

Hosta "Yellow River" review

20" tall. Light shade. Gray-green with whitish yellow margins, cordate, ribbed, wavy margins. 13" x 10" leaves. 48" scapes with white flowers. One of the best, yellow edged large leaved available. Upright habit. This medium sized clumper gets our highest rating as one of the best hostas ever introduced. The spectacular dark green foliage emerges with a wide yellow edge that changes to white. In early summer, the 4' wide clumps are topped with large pure white flowers on sturdy 34" scapes... truly stunning! Bright, deep-green leaves have yellow margins; lavender flowers. A montana sport, the leaves are deep green with undulating, bright yellow edges, long and pointed, with prominent veining and a very heavy texture. White flowers. (M/L) Distinct, yellow margins bordering a dark green center. Good substance. A real beauty! Lavender flowers. Large, dark green leaves with wide yellow margins. Lavendar flowers in July and August. Given time makes a magnificent clump.
