2012 Hosta of the Year

'Liberty'

H. Liberty

This sport of 'Sagae' features a wider, more dramatic border, especially noticeable on younger plants. The leaves are thicker than 'Sagae', indicating its probability of being a polyploid. Like 'Sagae', the yellow margin fades to creamy-white later in the season. Lavender flowers top the clump in early summer.
