[M-L] Large, heavy leaves emerge in the spring with a creamy-gold center surrounded by a wide, blue-green edge. This sport of 'Elegans' originated in Europe and differs from 'Great Expectations' in that the light center gradually fades to chartreuse, making for a more vigorous plant. The rounded and often twisted leaves are sometimes "gathered" where the two colors meet - similar to the effect seen in 'Embroidery'. Hosta 'Golden Meadows' form a somewhat unruly mound about 3 to 4 feet across. White flowers on short scapes in early summer.
