This amazing sport of the popular Hosta 'Gold Standard' was introduced by Iowa's Kirk avid Trekkie. Hosta 'Captain Kirk' is probably a tetraploid hosta featuring a delicious wide golden center, surrounded by a very wide, dark green edge. As you can imagine, the contrast is truly stunning. Each 3' wide clump of Hosta 'Captain Kirk' is topped with lavender flowers in midsummer. Aren't you about ready to boldly grow what none of your neighbors has grown before?
