Hosta 'Designer Genes'

Plantain Lily

‘Designer Genes’ Plantain Lily is a wonderful combination of chartreuse yellow leaves displayed on red petioles or stems. The color combination is most impressive in spring, although Hosta ‘Designer Genes’ keep its yellow color well into the summer, slowly aging to light green. The flowers are lavender-purple, and are produced in late July and August. ‘Designer Genes’ was hybridized by Arthur Wrede of Maryland.
