Hosta 'Blaugold'

This cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Sieboldiana' which was registered in 2003 by Peter and Jean Ruh of Ohio on behalf of the originator, Heinze Klose of Germany. It develops into a giant size (30 inches high by 36 inches wide) plant with chartreuse to gold colored foliage. The leaves are deeply lobed at the base, oblong to ovate in shape and have slightly rippled margins. Pale purple flowers bloom from late July into August.

The registration materials state: "...yellow with shades of green; fast grower; good texture."

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "....the number of vein pairs (fewer), flower color (more lavender), and flowering period (much later) indicate a hybrid background."
