The 1996 Hosta of the Year is considered one of the classics. Named by hosta guru Paul Aden after himself (just kidding), the medium-sized green leaves emerge with a gold border that ages into a nice, wide creamy edge. In late summer, the rapidly multiplying, 3' wide clump is topped with stalks of very fragrant near-white flowers. For us, this is the last hosta to go dormant. Dynamite!
