Hosta 'Designer Genes' - New!
'Designer Genes' - Mature Size: 12"T x 28"W - likes morning sun
- This seedling of H. 'Miss Susie' has brilliant yellow leaves that contrast nicely with the red petioles.
- H. ‘Designer Genes’ is incredibly striking in the spring as the brilliant yellow leaves emerge from contrasting deep wine red shoots.
- As the leaves emerge, the tips of the leaves are tinged red which I love seeing each spring.
- It quickly grows to form a medium sized mound of bright yellow leaves with showy bright red petioles.
- H. 'Designer Genes' holds on to its yellow color longer into the season than other red petiole gold varieties.
- In deep shade the leaves will be lime-green in summer.
- Purple flowers held up on beautiful red scapes in late summer.
Why Should I Grow It? Nice yellow leaves on bright red petioles.
