Bright gold with a green maple leaf design in center of each leaf. Lavender flowers in late spring. This revolutionary sport of H. 'Little Aurora' boasts small rounded bright gold leaves with a wide light green border. Each leaf is "tattooed" with the outline of a dark green maple leaf in the center... a dramatic departure from the typical two-toned hosta foliage. You may have to work at finding the right location to grow this plant but the results are well worth the effort. Needs good drainage.

Hosta 'Titanic'
GIANT 30" high by 72" wide
Slug resistant and sun tolerant
(H. Hansen/Shady Oaks Nursery, 1999) This is a very large plant, four to five feet across once it matures. It has a solid green center with a real wide gold band around it. With a name like H. 'Titanic', you can imagine how big this hosta will become. Old clumps should easily surpass the 9' record of its parent H. 'Sum and Substance'. This sport of H. 'Sum and Substance' boasts a very wide golden border surrounding the glossy chartreuse-green center, even when young. It is far more dramatic than the first-introduced edged forms of H. 'Sum and Substance". This should only be planted where space is not a problem. The clumps are topped with large light lavender flowers in midsummer.
