Yellow Splash

Hosta "Yellow Splash" review

Streaked breeder:*** Green with a streaky yellow edge. Lavender flowers. May be unstable. Reverts to all yellow or margined. Different forms? According to the description it should flower Augustus-September, mine flowers June-July! See "TAMING THE WILD ONES" [THJ17/2:28-29] for some of his sports. Herb advices to plant it in poor sandy soil, in shade, to slow down it's growth and keep it streaked.
