Hosta 'Designer Genes'

Common Name: Hosta

We are incredibly excited to offer you what we consider to be the best yellow hosta with red petioles available on the market today. 

‘Designer Genes’ is incredibly striking in the spring as the brilliant yellow leaves emerge from contrasting deep wine red shoots.  It quickly grows to form a medium sized mound of bright yellow leaves with showy bright red petioles. 

Compared to other yellow hostas, this variety holds its coloring longer.  Later in the season, the foliage mellows to more of a chartreuse green color.  Tall, red scapes carry the purple flowers in late summer. 

This is surely one hosta not to be missed!

Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.

This premium hosta variety is part of a group of the finest hostas available today. Members of this collection were evaluated and selected by a group of specialty hosta growers in zones 4-7, who together have a combined total of over 150 years of hosta growing experience. To be considered a premium hosta, plants must perform superbly in all four zones (4-7). They must also exhibit exemplary garden presence and performance, have a long season of appeal in the landscape, have leaves of good substance, and demonstrate a greater resistance to common garden pests.
