A medium to large yellow-gold plant from Langfelder. Inexpensive and carried by many nurseries, it is certain to be labeled a best buy and a classic. It has soft lavender to nearly white bell-shaped flowers. In spring the leaves are a greenish yellow, maturing to a glowing gold, cordate, with excellent texture. The clump size can easily be 24 x 42" with bloom scapes 32" tall. The flowers are fertile and quite large. Van Wade says that it prefers 4 to 5 hours of morning sun. After 'Hyacinthina', this hosta holds the record for sports ... at least 24 and still growing. These sports include: 'August Halo', 'Lunar Sea', 'Lunar Orbit', 'September Sun', 'Indiana Knight', and 'September Surprise'. It is seen as resembling sieboldiana types, but it's actual origin is mysterious and it blooms much later.
