Hosta 'Designer Genes' has been a real attention-getting hosta in our display garden, so we decided it's time to share. Hosta 'Designer Genes' is an Arthur Wrede hybrid that forms a 1' tall x 28" wide clump of yellow leaves that emerge brilliant gold in spring, contrasting nicely with the bright, rhubarb red petioles. In the heat of summer, the leaves will eventually turn green, although morning sun maintains the color a bit longer. We have been really pleased with the vigor and performance of Hosta 'Designer Genes' and hope you enjoy it in your garden as much as we have.
