Hosta 'Anne Arett'

This sport of H. 'Subcrocea' was registered by Anne Arett in 1975. The medium size hosta forms a 12 inch tall mound with a spread of about 28 inches. Its foliage is gold with a white marginal variegation. The leaves are slightly wavy with very thin substance. Pale purple flowers bloom in August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "In the 1980s, 'Anne Arett' was a fairly common sight in most hosta collections, but fewer and fewer gardens have it on display."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Not vigorous...One of the earliest introductions with this coloring and now considered a collector's plant...Leaf edge becomes less rippled with maturity."

An article by Gwen Black from England in The Hosta Journal (1997 Vol. 28 No. 2) answers the question, "Which hosta makes the most outstanding golden dazzle in the early growth?...candidates were: 'Goldsmith', 'Gold Haze', 'Platinum Tiara', 'Golden Scepter', 'Sea Fire', 'Golden Oriole', 'Hadspen Samphire', 'Bizarre', 'Anne Arett' and 'Granary Gold' and on this occasion the award went to H. 'Golden Oriole' with H. 'Granary Gold' a close second."
