Gorgeous pie-crusted leaves improve in texture and beauty every year.

When other Hostas turn green in the heat, 'Dancing Queen' becomes even more creamy primrose!
There has never been a yellow Hosta quite like 'Dancing Queen,' and it will stand out in the shade garden like a shaft of sunshine in a dark glen! This large, wide Hosta is exquisitely rippled and quilted, its outstanding foliage attention-getting in any setting.

The new leaves open bright gold in spring, turning a lighter shade as the season progresses. Long, pointed, and heavily rippled, they are held elegantly up and out from the center of the plant. With each passing year, they grow more intensely textured and beautifully substantial.

In midsummer, the foliage is topped by pale lavender blooms on 28-inch stems. Largely insignificant, the flowers may be snipped and used as filler in the vase, or left on the plant to highlight the color contrast they present against the yellow leaves.

'Dancing Queen' eventually reaches 18 inches high and spreads about 30 inches wide. Spectacular in the border, it is also superb for woodland settings, and can even be grown in a large container. It forms the natural centerpiece of any Hosta garden, standing out brilliantly against 'El Nino,' 'Silver Bay,' and 48438">'Abiqua Drinking Gourd,' among many others.

'Dancing Queen' was bred by Kent Terpening, and thrives in partial to full shade. Very hardy and long-lived, it belongs front and center in your shade garden display. Do add it to the garden this season! Zones 3-9.
