About This Hosta

'Designer Genes' was bred by Arthur Wrede of the Azalea Patch in Joppa, Maryland. He is one of the top breeders of hostas with red petioles. 'Designer Genes' becomes a striking medium-sized mound of bright gold foliage with sharply contrasting rich red petioles and purple flowers in July.
