'Stained Glass' shows why it is so highly acclaimed among Hosta lovers with foliage that is brilliant gold with a wide, dark green margin, a unique reversal of the usual variegated Hosta. The leaves are shiny and the golden centers darken during the season as they form a dense, wide spreading mound that will really dominate and brighten a shady area of the landscape. Fragrant, pale lavender flowers are borne on 30-36" scapes in August and will fill the garden will sweet scent. This selection is aptly named for the glowing gold leaf center and prominent veining that gives the appearance of stained glass and is an addition to the garden that could almost be considered a religious experience! 2006 Hosta of the Year.
